Rhetoric Parent Day - Clongowes Wood College

Posted: 1st October 2015

Clongowes Wood College SJ

This year, the Rhetoric Parent Day will take place on Sunday 4th October 2015 as indicated on the school calendar. 

We are very pleased to announce that Fr. Damian Howard SJ will be the guest speaker.  The theme of Fr Damian’s presentation will be;

“What’s going on in the Muslim World?”

Fr Damian is a Jesuit of the British Province.  Born near London, he trained in Cambridge, Paris and the London School of Economics before studying Islam in London and Birmingham. He is the author of Being Human in Islam: the impact of the evolutionary worldview (2011) and lectures in theology at Heythrop College, University of London. You can watch Damian’s vocation story here.

This year the format of the day has been changed.  After welcome and refreshments at 09.15 Fr. Howard will give his presentation at 09.50 in the Arts and Science block.  For ease of access please park round by the infirmary.

As this is the final Parent Day for Rhetoric parents, we hope you can attend.  Please RSVP to Liz Griffin at lgriffin@clongowes.net or 045 838294 before Wednesday 30th September.
