Spring Programme 2019

 

Is the Irish Church in Terminal Decline?

Any hope of revival?

Yes, says Michael Screene who during

the day will explore the signs of hope

emerging for the Global and Irish

Church.

But do you agree? 

And who is / will lead the revival? Clergy, laity or a

combined team?
 
Your views will be welcome.

Facilitator: Michael Screene MSC

Date: January 26th

Time: 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.

The church will always experience difficulties both from

the weaknesses of its members and from the resistance

of the surrounding culture that cannot understand its

core message.

Yet, it believes it has a message and power to transform

life and bring happiness and fulfillment for all.

Is Our Package of Modernity Deeply

Flawed?

Very definitely and ultimately self

destructive according to John Waters.

He has strong views on what he claims

are the continuing decline in standards

in some Irish media and Irish society.

He argues his case passionately, arousing equally

Hear, contribute to, and challenge his views on what

promises to be a lively evening.
