Ecumenical Bible Week, which traditionally takes place from Pentecost Sunday to Trinity Sunday (31 May–7 June), has been postponed due to restrictions around Covid–19. However, there will be a number of opportunities to engage online (details on.bibleweek.ie). The theme for 2020 is ‘Faith in the Public Square’. On Tuesday June 2 at 10am there will be Morning Prayer with Julie McKinley, Development Officer of the National Bible Society of Ireland and her husband Philip, who is an ordinand in CITI.
On Thursday June 4 at 3pm there will be a webinar on the topic: “In light of the C19 crisis and the increased digital presence, where to from here for faith communities?”
On Sunday June 7 at 7pm there will be Evening Prayer with Martin Sauter and the Lutheran community.
Ecumenical Bible Week’s organisers have invited musicians and singers from all Christian traditions to record and share a hymn, song, piece of music or an original piece that speaks to the EBW 2020 theme and to people’s current experience of faith in this most different of public squares. These will be shared during the week.
