The second day of the Heythrop 400th anniversary celebrations started early on Friday morning with Mass at Farm St Church celebrated by Fr General Adolfo Nicolas SJ who had travelled from Rome for the occasion.
The 400th anniversary of the foundation of Heythrop College was marked on Thursday by a prestigious international academic event. Fr Michael Holman SJ opened the conference, reminding delegates that the Jesuits operated “arguably the largest education network worldwide”. Heythrop itself is the longest established Jesuit education institute in the world.
Scripture scholar Father Nicholas King SJ has brought the Bible to life – not only in written form but now in a series of CDs of the Gospels. On the recordings, Fr King reads from the New Testament – just as Jesus’ followers would have heard it: with passion, humour and deep faith, from his own unique translation.
