Ecumenical Bible Week – Online 2020 (31 May – 7 June)

Ecumenical Bible Week 2020 Online

“In light of the C19 crisis and the increased digital presence, where to from here for faith communities?" What is the effect of the C19 crisis on faith communities?

This question will be part of the Ecumenical Bible Week 2020. In response to the current health crisis, we have postponed parish events and instead we are offering two periods of Ecumenical Prayer and one online discussion of the effect of coronavirus on the lives and worship of believers. Our schedule is:

 

Tuesday, June 2 10.00 am: Morning Prayer, led by Julie McKinley (Development Officer of the  National Bible Society of Ireland) and her husband Philip, a candidate for priesthood in the Church of Ireland.

 

 

 

Thursday, June 4 3.00 pm: an online webinar. Chair: Pat Coyle, communications officer for the Jesuits in Ireland. Panel: Scott Evans (C. of I. chaplain in UCD); Sam McConkey (RCSI; Associate Professor in International Health Tropical Medicine; ruling elder in Clontarf and Scots Presbyterian Church); Bryan Shortall (Capuchin priest and author).

 

 

Sunday, June 7 7.00 pm: Evening Prayer from the Lutheran Church led by Martin Sauter.
