I'm going to Evangelium 2010, and if you are between the ages of 18 and 35, you should go too. Yes, I am too old, but I was asked to go, so I'm going. I shall bring a big box of my books, too, as they are Grade A orthodox and so is Evangelium. My pal Dr. Alan Fimister says so, and if he says so, it is so. Believe me on this.
The conference will be from August 6 to August 8 at the Reading Oratory School, which is a school founded by the future Cardinal Newman in England. There are way more Catholics in England than in Scotland, so I am longing to rush down and check them all out. If you are a British Catholic and you look at the list of lectures on the website, you may see some names you recognize, like "Fr. Aidan Nichols" and "Joanna Bogle."
I am told there will be Mass offered every day in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms, and in the Roman and in the Dominican Rite. How accomodating is that?
The fee is £95, which does not sound bad for a weekend mini-break with solid Catholic speakers and a gang of fellow young Catholics. So if you think you can make it, and it should be easy for European Union citizens, fill out the online form and circle the date on your liturgical calendars.
I shall not be officially speaking, but I shall be plugging my beloved book, so if Singles want to talk to little me in person about Singledom, you may. (If you have HFCWG questions, though, there will be lots of priests and a couple who do marriage prep who would LOVE to talk to you!)
Eeee! I'm so excited! There are, like, only 50 people or so in my TLM community, so the prospect of seeing lots and lots of people at a Catholic conference in my new island home fills me with glee.
