Faith on Tap is run by Fr Michael Docherty, and he bills the series as 'Talks on the Catholic Faith for Enquiring Minds, from Gifted Speakers.' Certainly the one I managed to get to lived up to that billing.
The next one is on Thursday 19th November, and is Arise once more! The Renewal of Catholic England, by Fr Marcus Holden.
Fr Marcus Holden is a priest of the Archdiocese of Southwark. He was ordained in 2005 after six years of seminary at the Venerable English College in Rome. He became parish priest of Ramsgate and Minster in 2010 after serving as assistant priest in Balham (2005-2008) and Royal Tunbridge Wells (2008-2010). He holds several academic degrees in theology including a Masters from Oxford University and a Licentiate from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. Among his many publications are the Evangelium Course and the Saints of the English Calendar. He is co-founder of the Evangelium Project and the British Confraternity of Catholic Clergy and regularly works with the media on behalf of the Catholic Church and in the production of documentary films on faith and religion. He is a popular speaker and lecturers at the Maryvale Institute in the MA Apologetics course.
