On 28 November, members of the Church Leaders Group, including the Leaders of the Irish Council of Churches, Presbyterian Church, Catholic Church, Church of Ireland, and Methodist Church in Ireland at Áras an Uachtaráin, met with the President of Ireland, President Higgins.

Following the meeting, Church Leaders said, “We were delighted to accept the President’s invitation and very much welcomed the opportunity to spend time with him in what has been a focused, but relaxed and informal conversation across a wide range of issues. The context for today’s meeting was our shared commitment to reconciliation and peacebuilding on the island of Ireland.

They concluded, “At the start of this Advent Season, when as disciples of Jesus Christ we look forward to celebrating the arrival of the Prince of Peace, it was positive and worthwhile to meet with the President and his wife Sabina today.”
