To Parliament...

...for a large gathering addressed by Lord Alton, celebrating the 100th birthday of the Catholic National Library, treasure-house of a vast range of books, periodicals and archive material.  Launch of a new book by Fr Gerard Skinner telling the story of the Library.  One of the great committee rooms in the House of Lords was packed for this event, and it was a tremendous bringing-together of men and women from Catholic public life...MPs and peers and writers and educationalists and  leaders of Catholic groups and organisations, clergy and laity...afterwards a most agreeable Reception at the Commonwealth Club in Northumberland Avenue, following a walk down lamplit, rain-splashed Whitehall.
