Fr Eugene McCaffrey O.C.D.
Celebrating St Teresa of Avila

Our spring lecture series this year takes as its motif "remembering and imagining", with the first two lectures celebrating significant church anniversaries, and the final two exploring some of  the links between Christianity and the arts.

For the first lecture, we have invited Fr Eugene McCaffrey to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of St Teresa of Avila. All are welcome to the talk, which takes place in the library at 6.30pm on Tuesday 10th March.

Fr McCaffrey is attached to the community of Discalced Carmelite Friars at the Avila Centre in Dublin  In 1998 he published a book on another great Carmelite saint, Thérèse of Lisieux, in the year in which she was declared a doctor of the church.

Fr McCaffrey's  books on the Spanish Teresa include an introduction to her writings, brought out by the Teresian Press in 2014. This year, Columba Press has published a second book Let Nothing Trouble You: Teresa - the woman, the guide, the storyteller

All of these titles by Fr McCaffrey are available for borrowing from our lending library.
