  • Exhibition: The nature of charity - considering how the virtue of charity allows the giver of charity to complete and fulfil himself, and how, through sharing our life, we find joy in the reality before us and meaning in suffering.

  • Meeting: The nature of charity - Panel discussion with David Livesey, Alessandro Mele, Pam Orchard

  • Evening event: Beats and Heartbeats: in tune with reality - The Irish journalist John Waters will join us in the evening. This guided listening journey will help us to discover (or rediscover) the origin of all mankind’s actions – the relationship between the desire for “everything” and what is before it: reality.
