Friends of Sophia Spring Conference 18th May 2024




The Friends of Sophia Seventh Annual Conference



Saturday 18 May 2024, 9.30am to 5.30pm


St Dominic’s Priory


The Rosary Shrine


Southampton Road


London NW5 4LB



In a unique blend of academic study, retreat and the art of movement, today’s conference invites us both to understand and experience the profound connection between the Virgin Mary, healing and wisdom.



“In an age of tribalism and silo thinking in society and sometimes in the churches, the Friends of Sophia boldly draws on the forgotten Biblical figure of Wisdom, who joins together heaven and earth and humankind. Celebrating the fullness of graced human knowing through the interconnection of sciences, humanities, art, spirituality and psychology… a new departure and a healing beginning for difficult times.” - Timothy Radcliffe, 2023


Timothy Radcliffe is a distinguished preacher and writer of the Catholic Dominican Order. His books include Alive in God: A Christian Imagination (Bloomsbury, 2019).
