The Hunted Priest: Fr John Gerard, the English Mission and the Gunpowder Plot

  • Date – Wednesday 22nd May
  • Time – 6.45pm
  • Cost – Free/donation
  • Location – Farm Street Hall
  • Description – Landing at night on the Norfolk Coast in October 1588, Fr John Gerard SJ very successfully ministered to English Catholics for 17 years in extraordinary circumstances. After many daring escapes he suffered imprisoned and torture, famously escaping from the Tower of London in 1597 to continue his work until 1605. The talk is by his ten greats nephew, Michael Maslinski, who last year persuaded the BBC to withdraw inaccurate allegations in a documentary that he had been a central figure in the Gunpowder Plot
