    Bringing Christians together


All present agreed that Alex, who is a prospective Postulant of the Order of St Lazarus, put into context the horrendous plight suffered by our Christian brothers and sisters in Syria.  He also described the amazing charitable work being undertaken in Syria by ACN.  The diocese of the Spiritual Protector of our Order, His Beatitude Youssef Absi SMSP, Patriarch of Antioch, covers the area of the current Syrian conflict.  This added greater poignancy to the fundraising efforts of the evening.


Following the lecture, we gathered in the Newman Hall refectory for a splendid dinner prepared by the Cardiff Oratorians, assisted by the Fellows and Scholars of Newman Hall.  We are grateful to the Very Rev’d Dr Sebastian Jones Cong Orat ChLJ (Commandery Executive Chaplain, Dean of Newman Hall), Fr Alexander Cong Orat (Warden of Newman Hall) and Bro Ambrose Cong Orat (Assistant Chaplain) for their hospitality.  To date, £3000 has been raised by this appeal for the work of ACN.  Thank you to all who contributed to a wonderfully successful evening.
