Faith Connections' THEOLOGY ON TAP: From Gangland to Promised Land

Event Date: 
Monday, September 30, 2013 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Special guest from Ireland: John Pridmore, author and speaker.

Pridmore grew up in the east end of London and following his parents divorce at ten, he then started getting into trouble, ending up in a young offenders prison. Having left home at 15, the only occupation he’d learnt was stealing. By his 20s he’d become a violent London gangster well acquainted with the capital’s criminal underworld. One night outside a nightclub, he nearly killed a man.... then something extraordinary happened: He went from a life of darkness to working with people like Mother Teresa of Calcutta and meeting Pope John Paul II.

John currently lives in Ireland and over the past 16 years has spoken to over three million young people worldwide, giving talks in conferences, universities, schools and prisons. At the World Youth Day in Sydney he addressed 500,000 young people in the presence of the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI.
