Ecumenical service to mark 50th anniversary of Ballymascanlon talks

by | 19 Dec, 2022 | News

During their Winter General Meeting in Maynooth, Bishops noted that 2023 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Ballymascanlon talks that saw the Catholic Church develop strong ecumenical relations that have grown over the past fifty years.

An ecumenical joint service of thanksgiving will be held in Saint Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, on 22 January at 3.30 pm with Archbishop Eamon Martin and Rev Harold Good preaching.  The Irish Inter-Church Meeting gathers for an annual conference and the Inter-Church Meeting, made up of Church leaders, meets four times a year.  The recent annual conference with participants from various Churches across the island was entitled ‘Creatively reconfiguring our post-pandemic understanding of church’.
