His own speciality is 18th century French furniture. In June 2019 he was accepted as a Seminarian for the Diocese of Westminster, and started his studies at the Pontifical Beda College in Rome in September 2019. He currently resides at the Church of Holy Apostles Pimlico for his summer placement.
As this is a virtual event, there will be no drinks reception afterwards sadly, but feel free to join the talk with a drink in hand!
We hope you can join us for what should be a fascinating evening.
