Liverpool Education Committee Follows Catholic Example
Liverpool Education Committee has decided to follow the example of Catholic Action.
In April the Public Service Committee of the Liverpool Archdiocesan Catholic Action Board commenced a series of citizenship lectures on such subjects as Local Government, Social Questions, Trade Unions, Cooperative and Thrift Societies, etc. They were an immediate success. Now the Education Committee have decided to start special central evening classes on the same subjects. They will start in the autumn.
This is mainly due to the work of Mr. P. Taggart, the President of the Public Service Committee, which organisation has been making great progress. Fourteen competent people have volunteered for public lecture work and the instruction of further lecturers.
Further Catholic Action activities include the explanation of the encyclical Divini Redemptoris by direction of the Archbishop of Liverpool in all the churches of the archdiocese. This commenced last Sunday.
A week-end conference is also being held on Saturday and Sunday by the Liverpool Catholic Action C.S.G., when Fr. Lewis Watt, S.J., will lecture on ' The State."
