Fr. Robert Barron in ChCh

A number of the priests of our diocese are on retreat in Christchurch this week.  The retreat is being led by Fr. Robert Barron, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

He will give a lecture in Christchurch on Wednesday night. (details below)

Fr. Barron is well known as a sound and articulate theologian, and communicator of the beauty of the life of Catholic faith.
