Luton was privileged to host Catholic Archbishop Antonio Mennini, Apostolic Nuncio (Pope's Ambassador) to Great Britain, who visited Luton on Tuesday 29th October. He was Pope's Ambassador earlier to Russian Federation (2002-8) and to Uzbekistan (2008-10). He is vested with both ecclesiastical and political power as the Pope's representative. He has to be presented to the Queen on arrival in the country.
The Papal Nuncio joined team members of Grassroots as long as colleagues from various faith communities and Luton Council of Faiths representatives for a small reception at Holy Ghost Catholic Church to share our positive work and co-existence in Luton and to share some refreshments afterwards.
