The Archbishop of Canterbury will deliver the Sixth John Coventry Memorial Address at Farm Street Jesuit Church this Saturday.

Dr Rowan Williams will speak on 'The Fellowship of the Baptised' at the event organised by the Association of Interchurch Families (AIF).  The Association was founded by Fr John Coventry SJ in 1968 and continues to offer a support network for families in which one partner is Roman Catholic or Orthodox and the other partner is a member of another Christian denomination or communion.

Fr Coventry was the British Jesuit Provincial from 1958 to 1964, and wrote several books on moral theology and the Catholic faith.  During his time as a priest, he developed a theological understanding of mixed marriages between baptised Christians, and gave pastoral care to hundreds of couples.  He referred to interchurch families as 'my life's devotion', serving as the AIF's Co-chair for many years and subsequently as President, until his death in 1998.

The John Coventry Memorial Address will be chaired by the President of the World Baptist Alliance, Revd David Coffey, and all will be welcome to attend; admission is free but there will be retiring collection on behalf of the AIF.  The event will start at 2.15pm at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street, London W1, this Saturday, 20 March 2010.
