Cardinal Manning

There will be an exhibition on the life and legacy of Cardinal Henry Manning, Archbishop of Westminster from 1865 - 1892, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street, organised by Jesuits in Britain, from March 1 - 23.

The Exhibition will be introduced with a talk on Cardinal Manning by Fr Nicholas Schofield, Diocese of Westminster Archivist, in the church on Monday 5 March at 6.45pm. All welcome.

The year 2014 marked the 125th anniversary of the Great Dock Strike which Cardinal Manning played a key role in bringing to a resolution through faciliitating negotiations between the strike leaders and the dock managers. The final settlement was known locally as 'the Cardinal's Peace'.

Manning's legacy as a great champion of the poor, the dignity and rights of workers, education and family life is still with us, most notably in the lasting contribution he made to the development of Catholic social teaching.

Farm Street is the church where where Cardinal Manning celebrated his first Mass as a Catholic Priest.
