The Right Reverend William Kenney, Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Birmingham, was our guest speaker at dinner on Tuesday of 4th week. The Bishop, having recently returned from the refugee camps of northern Iraq, spoke movingly on the importance of peace in the world and the contribution of dialogue towards that end. He spoke about his visits to the Holy Land and Iraqi Kurdistan, the consequences of the international arms trade, and the plight of refugees of all backgrounds in the ongoing Middle East conflicts.
