Join us for an hour of prayer and reflection with Bishop John Arnold, Chair of CAFOD’s Board of Trustees and Bishop of Salford, in the last of our ‘Harvest like no other’ events. Bishop John will reflect on the lessons of Pope Francis’ new catechesis, Healing the World, and consider the significance of the highly anticipated new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, for our global family.
Rt Rev John Arnold
