The Hurley biography Denis Hurley: Truth to Power by Paddy Kearney will be launched in Pietermaritzburg on the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council in 1962, a groundbreaking event for the Catholic Church. Archbishop Hurley described the Council as ‘the greatest experience of my whole life’ and he is well known for his enthusiastic implementation of the Vatican II’s vision and decrees.
Truth to Power is an abridged version of Kearney’s Guardian of the Light published in 2009 by UKZN Press. The launch will take place at the Dominican House, 5 Leinster Road, Scottsville at 19h00 on 11 October. Father Alan Henriques OMI, a lecturer from St Joseph’s Theological Institute, Cedara, will speak on ‘Historical Perspectives of the Second Vatican Council: Challenges to Church Structures Today’.
Truth to Power is published by University of KwaZulu-Natal Press and will be sold at the special launch price of R200 per copy at this event.
Members of the public are welcome to attend this event. Refreshments will be available.Posted on
