One thousand people attended a meeting, first of a series. to explain Catholic doctrine, in Sheffield City Hall on Sunday evening last.
The talk " about Jesus Christ," was given by Fr. John Heenan, Superior of the Catholic Missionary Society.
Title of the series is: What the Catholic Church Thinks. Organisers are the Sheffield Council of Catholic Action, "There is no religion except the Catholic religion," said Fr. Heenan, " which requires as the basis of faith the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
All Catholic doctrines proceeded from this belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ.
Mgr. J. Dinn, chairman, said that Catholic dogma was so often distorted nowadays. that it was only fair that non-Catholics should come and hear the Church speak for herself.
People sat in the aisles of Salford City Memorial Hall on Monday night, to hear Fr. Heenan give a talk " about Confession," the second talk in the series.
