“A conversation with John Pridmore. Bouncer. Gangster. Youth Worker. Friend of the Pope.”
At St Dyfrig’s Parish Hall (behind Domino’s Pizza), Wednesday 6th May. 5.15 p.m.
John Pridmore was born in the east end of London. At the age of 13 he started stealing, and soon found himself in a detention centre. At 19, he was in prison again, on 23-hour solitary confinement because of his violence. Soon after release he found himself involved in massive drug deals, protection rackets and vicious crime of all sorts… until the day John was challenged to turn his life around. A deep experience caused John to rediscover the Catholic faith of his youth, and from that began an incredible journey. Since the mid-1990s, John Pridmore has spoken to hundreds of thousands of young people about his experiences, and last year shared a platform with Pope Benedict XVI in Australia. Now, for one day only, he has a platform at the University of Glamorgan to speak about his experiences in conversation with the Chaplains, and you, the audience. Come and join the conversation: St Dyfrig’s Hall, 5.15 p.m., Wednesday 6th May.
