Online bookings for this year’s Faith and Life Convention are now open.  We hope that you will be able to be with us on Saturday 28th September 2019 in Our Lady and St Patrick’s College in Belfast.   This year our theme for the convention is Faith in a Better World and our Keynote Speaker will be Michel Camdessus.  Michel is the former director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a member of the Pontifical Council on Justice and Peace.    Our keynote speech will be followed by a panel discussion where together we can reflect on the variety of issues that we face in society today.  The highlight of the day for many people is the variety of workshops on offer and this year we have an impressive line-up of local and international speakers.    The convention is an excellent opportunity to network with others from the Diocese and beyond.  We look forward to welcoming you and having an enjoyable day where we can encourage one another to be people of active faith in our society.
