Campion Hall Newsletter - Trinity Term 2014

Welcome to Campion News, our regular newsletter beginning with this issue. In the past we have produced an occasional newsletter, but we plan to publish this one regularly, at the start of each term. We feel we have much to share with our friends, both old and hopefully new. We want to keep you informed about who we are at Campion Hall, what is happening here, and what we are achieving and aiming to achieve. We hope that reading about all this will prove interesting and enjoyable to our readers.

Rev'd, James Hanvey, SJ, - After the General Election: a politics for all people

The General Election might have returned a Conservative majority government, but the results ‘cannot disguise a deeply divided nation, one which has rarely been more fragile and is heading into a precarious future.’ James Hanvey SJ looks to what lies ahead and suggests that two pillars of Catholic Social Teaching can invigorate politics and allow it to serve, rather than instrumentalise society.
