Shrewsbury Talks ...

Over the last few years Shrewsbury Cathedral has become the host to a series of talks, presentations and cultural events that have become known as the Shrewsbury Talks.
Last night Father Philip Gillespie, Professor of Sacred Liturgy and acting President of Saint Cuthbert's Seminary at Ushaw, gave the latest in the series of talks. His topic was the Jewish roots of our Christian worship and he held the audience captivated and entertained!
