Ordinary speaks at Catholic Woman of the Year lunch
Sunday 16th October 2011

Monsignor Keith Newton was the speaker at this year's Catholic Women of the Year Luncheon. This event – begun in 1968 – honours the service given by Catholic women in Britain in a variety of fields including care of the homeless, fund-raising for charity, prison-visiting, education, organisation of parish events, and more

Some 300 women attend the Luncheon each year. Speakers over the years have included Catholic authors, Members of Parliament, TV personalities, and journalists – but the 2011 Luncheon made history by having Fr Keith, in this inaugural year of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. It proved to be an inspired choice – the Luncheon is always a joyful gathering but with a sense of purpose, and this was an opportunity for Catholic women from across Britain to hear about the Ordinariate and to do so with a sense of celebration and support. For most of those present, it was the first time they had been able to learn just what the Ordinariate is all about, and to discover from Fr Keith the adventure of its foundation: he described how, within just a few months, he had experienced a whirlwind of events including ordination in Westminster Cathedral, a meeting with the Holy Father in Rome, the gatherings of the various Ordinariate groups, and the organisation of all sorts of things for the future.
