Details have been announced of the autumn series of visiting speakers at Trinity College Dublin Chapel. Among those who will speak about their guiding beliefs, principles or passions will be the well–known RTÉ broadcaster Joe Duffy, the Abbot of Glenstal Abbey Mark Patrick Hederman, and the independent Senator Marie–Louise O’Donnell.
Commenting on the series, the TCD Dean of Residence, the Revd Darren McCallig, said: “In Latin, the word ‘Credo’ means ‘I believe’ but some scholars tell us that it was originally derived from two other Latin words, ‘cor’ meaning heart, and ‘do’ from the verb meaning to give. In other words, to believe in something is to give our hearts to it, to make a loving commitment to it. With the help of our guest speakers we will, Sunday by Sunday, explore those commitments and those principles by which we choose to live our lives. It promises to be a fascinating and thought–provoking series.”
The full list of visiting speakers is as follows: Dr Gillian Wylie, Irish School of Ecumenics, TCD (6 October); Abbot Mark Patrick Hederman of Glenstal Abbey (20 October); Professor John Monaghan of the Society of St Vincent de Paul (3 November); Senator Marie–Louise O’Donnell, Member of Seanad Éireann (17 November) and Mr. Joe Duffy, Broadcaster and presenter of RTÉ Radio’s ‘Liveline’ (1 December). The TCD Dean of Residence, the Revd Darren McCallig, will preach on the other Sundays (29 September, 13 and 27 October, 10 and 24 November and 10 December).
All the addresses will be given in the context of the Sunday morning Choral Eucharist at 10.45am. All are welcome. Full details of the series and recordings of the addresses are available on the TCD Chaplaincy website: www.tcd.ie/chaplaincy
