Ecumenical Bible Week – May 31st to June 7th 2020
Ecumenical Bible Week is an exciting and successful venture which is now in its seventh year – May 31st to June 7th 2020.
It includes parish-based events around Dublin and surrounding areas. For 2020, our topic will be “Faith In The Public Square: Past Histories…. Current Realities”
“In light of the C19 crisis and the increased digital presence, where to from here for faith communities?”
What is the effect of the C19 crisis on faith communities? This question will be part of the Ecumenical Bible Week 2020. In response to the current health crisis, we have postponed parish events and instead we are offering two periods of Ecumenical Prayer and one online discussion of the effect of coronavirus on the lives and worship of believers.
