The Catholic Union will be hosting a webinar with His Majesty’s Ambassador to the Holy See, Chris Trott, next month.

The webinar is taking place on Thursday 13 July from 6.30-7.30pm. It is free to attend and open to everyone, but people will need to register in advance in order to receive the link to join the talk.

The event will give people the opportunity to hear about the work of our Embassy in the Vatican and the life of an Ambassador. The evening will be hosted by Catholic Union Deputy Director, James Somerville-Meikle.

Chris Trott became the British Ambassador to the Holy See in September 2021. He has been a British diplomat since 1991 and has previously served as Ambassador to South Sudan and Ambassador to Senegal. Before international postings, he was Deputy Head of the Human Rights Department at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office in London.

The webinar builds on the Catholic Union’s proud history of leading public discussion on Catholic matters, including our annual Craigmyle Lecture and a new “Pub Talk” series which started earlier this year.

Ambassador Chris Trott commented: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to speak to Catholic Union members and supporters about the work of our Embassy in the Vatican. Since taking up my post as Ambassador, I have seen first hand the importance of the relations between the Holy See and the United Kingdom. Clearly, this relationship is important to the Catholic community in Britain, but there are many shared cultural, economic, and diplomatic interests that are of much broader interest. I’m looking forward to sharing something of my life and work as an Ambassador in this webinar.”
