Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic bishops meet for shared reflection

Posted on: September 22, 2015 9:01 AM

[Church of Ireland] The annual meeting of representatives of the Irish Episcopal Conference and the Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of Ireland took place in Dublin on 17 September 2015. This was the fourth in a series of such meetings encouraged by the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission.

The bishops reflected together in an atmosphere of shared prayer on a number of issues. Particular emphasis was placed on the response of the Irish churches to the developing refugee crisis in Europe. There was also consideration of the forthcoming commemoration of the events of 1916, and the place of the churches in contributing together to national reflection and debate.

The bishops, as usual, shared fruitfully their perspectives concerning current social and educational matters, North and South.
