Evangelium Conference, August 3-5

Yep that's me on the right of the photograph - I was there last year, and for some reason I've been allowed back! The Evangelium Conference is great fun. You're not obliged to listen to me, there are lots of great speakers; it is interesting to see the range of people, including Fr Tim Finigan, who spoke at our own conference recently. The Traditional Mass is available, and the Latin Mass Society will have its own little stall. This is a great event, I recommend it.
