- How do we relate to others so humankind can flourish ?
Saturday 27 January 2018 at DABCEC 10am – 4pm
HOPE overcoming FEAR
The Church in the Modern World
‘The Glory of God is the human person fully alive’
Themes to explore will include a Christian response to rising nationalism, the media including social media, how we inform ourselves and messages of hope. We feel our Church has a tremendous opportunity to speak with authority on the issues of our time, issues which are causing a rise in fear in our society at present. The day will also include an update on our diocesan response to the Refugee Crisis.
Speakers will include Jack Valero, coordinator and co-founder of Catholic Voices and Dr Anthony Towey, Director of the Aquinas Centre for Theological Literacy at St Mary’s University.
All are welcome and I hope you can join us, please also encourage others to come.
