Upcoming blog event in Oxford

I am supposed to speak to a group in Oxford on Friday.  Here is the blurb for the event which the organizer sent to me:

Recognising the recent upsurge in blogs and blog readers in the world, a special  Colloquium has been organised by the Oxford University Newman Society, which will be held at the Catholic Chaplaincy on Friday, February 15, 2008 from 6-830pm on the theme of ‘Blogging and the Church.’

This event will be quite informal and interactive and will discuss the nature of blogs–What effect have blogs had on the Church? Who writes blogs and who reads them?  Are blogs an efficient way to disseminate information? What are the responsibilities of bloggers? Are blogs Social Forces?

The speakers are:

Rev’d Fr John T Zuhlsdorf, author of ‘What does the Prayer Really Say?’

Rev’d Fr John Hunwicke, author of ‘Fr Hunwicke’s Liturgical Notes’

Br Lawrence Lew OP, ‘The New Liturgical Movement’ and ‘Godzdogz’

Matthew Doyle, author of ‘Lacrimarum Valle’

Directions to the Oxford University Catholic Chaplaincy can be found at:

    Oh to be in England now that spring is almost here . . . I would love to attend this but cannot, of course. Fr. Z, please post on this event and what you thought were the salient points made. Many of your fellow bloggers would like to hear what goes on in Oxford on Friday.

    Fr. Z.

    Please post an abstract of your participation.

  4. Oh my – now I really regret not being in town to meet you in Rome – I know Br. Lawrence only virtually, as a flickr contact. We just liked each others photos – I didn’t realize he was a contributor to NLM.

  5. “supposed to be talking…”
    Yes, I know how you feel! What on earth will I say? You’re used to preaching, I’M NOT!!

    Looking forward to meeting you then, Father!
