Join members of the North East Catholic History Society for their latest lecture by Dr James Kelly entitled, ‘The other Reformation. From an early border town to global Catholic reform‘.
The Society welcomes non-members at its lectures (fee £1), all are welcome.
The Society was founded in July 1974 to promote research into the history of the Roman Catholic Church in the north eastern counties of England – a geographical term which is taken to cover the eastern half of the country between the rivers Tweed and Humber. The Society is independent but it enjoys the patronage of the Bishops of Hexham and Newcastle and Middlesbrough.
The interests of the Society extend from the mediaeval period to the recent past and cover all aspects of the Church’s life – biographical, cultural, institutional, architectural and sociological.
Each year, the Society arranges a programme of five afternoon talks between autumn and spring, and two coach excursions to places of Catholic interest in the northern region during summer.
