Teresa of Avila Conference June 2015

Dear All
One of my first duties on returning is to publish the poster for our forthcoming Teresa conference in June 2015. With Professors Julia Kristeva, Bernard McGinn, Gillian Ahlgren and Rowan Williams having agreed to speak it looks like being a tremendous event. We have limited numbers to 100 so do consider booking early! We also have a powerful Carmelite presence, both Discalced and Carmelite including Wilfrid McGreal, Matthew Blake, Iain Matthew and the Carmelite sisters from the UK. Do please keep this venture in your prayers and we look forward to welcoming you next year to celebrate Teresa's big 500! best Peter
