We are very delighted to have two speakers from Cambridge and respondent from Hong Kong. The webinar will focus on Catholic Social Teaching and the Common Good and why Catholic Social Teaching is not aligned with any particular politico-economic system, and how this works in practice.
Dr Frances Image and Dr Marystella Guerra
Dr Frances Image served for twenty years as Diocesan Schools’ Commissioner, first in East Anglia then in the Diocese of Northampton. She subsequently completed her Ph.D. at the University of London (Heythrop College/SAS) exploring the impact of Catholic education on the integral development of vulnerable and marginalized children in Ecuador measuring impact across the whole range of a child’s potentialities. Her current research focused on the interconnection between Catholic Social Teaching and the praxis of providing holistic education to children suffering extreme deprivation, including the practicalities of measuring impact. She is also currently involved in a project to produce a course on eco-theology for use within parishes in her diocese and beyond.

Her research interests include the religious Enlightenment of the Holy Roman Empire during the 18th Century, Women’s education during this Enlightenment period and its connection to the reform of civil society, and the historical connections between social-political regimes and the concept of Human Dignity as understood by Catholic Social Teaching.
