Ecumenical Bible Week for 2018 began this year on Pentecost Sunday 20 May, continuing until Trinity Sunday 27 May. Archbishop Eamon Martin, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland will join the events in Dublin to speak on this year’s theme ‘Handing on the Faith – Crisis, Challenge and the Great Commission’.
Now in its fourth year, Ecumenical Bible Week is a major ecumenical initiative led by the Archdiocese of Dublin and Church of Ireland United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough, along with other Christian Churches in Dublin. This year more than 15 unique events will take place during the week throughout Dublin, Arklow and Greystones.
A major event of this year’s Ecumenical Bible Week will be the Symposium event, which takes place at the Holy Cross Diocesan Centre on Clonliffe Road, Dublin 3, from 2.00pm to 5.00pm. Chaired by Ms Brenda Drumm, Media and Communications Manager for the World Meeting of Families, the Symposium will welcome columnist John Waters on the theme ‘Taking us Back to the Father’, Reverend Ginnie Kennerley on ‘Healing and Expansion in Christ’, and Nick Park of the Evangelical Alliance on ‘Modern Family – Ancient Problem’. Online registration is required to attend the 2018 Symposium.
Archbishop Martin will join the events to participate in the ‘Thinking Allowed’ panel discussion alongside Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin Michael Jackson and couples Bernadette and Patrick Boyce, Basil and Glynis Good, and Alan and Dianne Morris. The free event will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 24 May in the Holy Cross Diocesan Centre.
