Ruth Ashfield at Forum Christi

Ruth Ashfield, an expert in John Paul II's 'Theology of the Body', addressed our Forum Christi group on Sunday. She spoke about the importance of appreciating sexual difference and complementarity between men and women and how this enables a proper understanding of human nature and society. In a very animated question time she dealt with issues regarding true Christian feminism, homosexuality, chastity education, the importance of an exclusively male priesthood. Afterwards the group went on to the Nightingale pub for 'Theology on Tap'!
Last week Ruth had joined Declan Jones in speaking to our Keep the Faith and Confirmation groups about living a life of chastity in the world today.
