‘One Lord, One Faith’

Church of St. John the Baptist, Seafield Road West,  Clontarf, Dublin 3

An Ecumenical Conference commemorating the 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses.  To mark the 500th anniversary of the year that Martin Luther famously nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, sparking the Protestant Reformation,  this major ecumenical conference will feature renowned theologians and ecumenists and allow plenty of time for discussion/questions from the floor -in a bid to understand how we got to where we currently are on our ecumenical journey, and how we can all work together on the road to greater unity.

The facilitator for the day will be Philip McKinley, and there will be input from these renowned speakers on the following topics:

Dr. Gesa Thiessen: Background to the Reformation  An Introduction to Luther’s theology.  
Dr. Andrew Pierce: The Ecumenical Journey So Far : Inter-church dialogue and developments
Fr. Gabriel Daly: One Bread, One Body  An ecumenical theology of the Eucharist.
Gillian Kingston: Stepping Stones Towards Greater Unity:  What can be done at local level to progress things. 

Admission €20. Patrons are invited to bring a packed lunch and tea/coffee facilities will be provided. Alternatively, there is a Coffee Shop and a Hotel which serves lunches – a 5 minute walk from the Church.
