Ryan Finnegan 29/09/16  Reconciliation: Reflections on Coventry’s Role

Everyone throughout the Diocese is very warmly invited to Coventry Cathedral on 14 October for a very special film premiere focused on Coventry’s work in reconciliation, enabled by their North American Community of the Cross of Nails partners.

Featuring beautiful shots of both the old and new cathedrals, and full of insights from all those who have led the various phases of reconciliation work at Coventry since the 1970s, this is likely to be of interest to almost anyone involved with the Cathedral and its work.
