A Call to Action have announced the cancellation of their September meeting that was to be held in Southwark Cathedral’s Amigo Hall, stating that it has been ‘postponed’.
Protect the Pope posted the following on ACTA’s plan to hold this meeting on the 2nd August:
‘Why is the Archdiocese of Southwark allowing the dissent group A Call to Action use its cathedral hall?’
The acceptance of the dissent movement A Call to Action by the bishops of England and Wales continues with the Archdiocese of Southwark allowing it to hold a meeting in the Archbishop Amigo Hall – adjacent to the Metropolitan Cathedral Church of St George, Southwark. This further recognition follows Mgr Marcus Stock, the General Secretary of the Bishops Conference, attending ACTA’s first national conference at the Diocese of Leeds Pastoral Centre, Hinsley Hall.
The Archdiocese of Southwark has allowed ACTA to use the Archbishop Amigo Hall despite the fact that ACTA has admitted that it holds what it calls ’marginally unorthodox positions’ on its website following the Hinsley Hall conference.
A number of questions need answering by the Archdiocese:
- Who authorized ACTA’s booking of the Archbishop Amigo Hall ?
- Are ACTA being charged a fee for the venue?
- Does Archbishop Peter Smith know that his Archdiocese is hosting this dissent movement that, among other things, wants to change the Church’s doctrine on sexual ethics?
Protect the Pope comment: Protect the Pope will keep an eye on ACTA to see if they are allowed by the Archdiocese to re-book their meeting at Amigo Hall.
