Our Chair of Governors, Mrs Fran Hopkins, met Pope Francis in Rome.  Mrs Hopkins was in Rome as a representative of the Cursillos in Christianity Movement.  On 30th April, Mrs Hopkins gave a talk to over 5000 people in the Vatican about the work of Cursillo in the UK.

After the talk, Pope Francis spent about an hour with Cursillo members in the Vatican audience hall and thanked them "for all you do in the church, which is so beautiful; helping people encounter Jesus, helping them understand that living in the grace of God is beautiful."
