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 fulfilment 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 strong audience reaction. Hear, contribute to and challenge his views on what promises to be a lively evening.
