Church of Ireland Notes from ‘The Irish Times’ - Posted on 21/11/2015

Ecumenical Walk of Light in Dublin

Dublin Council of Churches’ 2015 Walk of Light takes place tomorrow (Sunday) beginning at 4.30pm in Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church, Rathmines, with participation by the Methodist congregation of Leeson Park. Worship continues en route with a stop in St. Finian’s Lutheran Church, Adelaide Road, where the Lutheran congregation will welcome the participants together with members of the Ethiopian Orthodox congregation of Dublin and of St. Bartholomew’s Church of Ireland whose rector, Rev. Andrew McCroskery, will speak. The journey ends with final prayers in St. Teresa’s Church in Clarendon Street where the Carmelite Community will also host a reception afterwards.

This is the tenth anniversary year of the annual pre–Advent inter–church journey and this year’s theme is ‘God has taken the lowly and raised them on high’. People from all walks of life, churched and un–churched, as well as representatives of thirteen local congregations of six different denominations and various ethnic backgrounds come together for this venture.

As the churches prepare for a “new year” with the coming of Advent, the Dublin Council of Churches sees this journey together as a simple sign of togetherness and as a witness to the hope all churches share.

Participants will engage in an act of worship that evolves as they visit each of the three host churches and which will explore the theme of the Magnificat through reflection and prayer in word and music.

The parish of Dundela will take part in the third Annual C.S. Lewis Festival this weekend. The parish will host a Narnia themed Craft Fair today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday) the 10.30am service will commemorate the life of Lewis with readings from his works.

The RTE 1 TV service tomorrow (Sunday) morning at 11.10am will be hosted by the Royal School of Church Music. Celebrating the Feast of St Cecilia, patron saint of musicians, the service will be led by the RSCM Ireland Coordinator, Mark Bowyer, and the choir will be accompanied by the organist of St Bartholomew’s, Dublin, Tristan Russcher.

Tomorrow morning the Revd Daniel Owen will be commissioned as Chaplain of St Columba’s College, Dublin, while in Co. Cavan the Revd Nick Jones will be introduced as priest–in–charge of the Drung group of parishes. In St Mary’s cathedral, Limerick, there will be a ‘Come and Sing Faure’s Reqiuiem’ as part of the Limerick Pipe Organ Festival. Registration and rehearsal begin at 2pm followed by the performance at 5pm – more information may be had at In Dublin, at 8pm the Gaudete Singers, directed by David Leigh, will sing works by Victoria, Morales and Guerrero in the Lady Chapel of St Patrick’s cathedral.

Next Wednesday the Dean of Connor, the Very Revd John Bond, will represent the Church of Ireland at the inaugural service of the General Synod of the Church of England in Westminster Abbey. In the evening at 7.30pm in St Theresa’s Carmelite Church, Clarendon Street, there will be a National Ecumenical Prayer Service in preparation for the UN Climate Summit, which has been organized by Eco–Congregation Ireland, Christian Aid and Trocaire.

President Higgins and representatives from Christian denominations will attend and the Archbishop of Dublin has been invited to bring forward the Environmental Charter which was passed at the General Synod last May.

On Friday evening at 7.30pm the Rokeby Lecture will be held in Armagh Public Library. Cormac Bourke, editor of the Ulster Journal of Archaeology, will introduce the collection of archaeological finds put together by Marcus Gervais Beresford, Archbishop of Armagh, 1862–85.
