A new series of online discussions to engage you during Lent begins this Thursday, February 18th at 8.30pm.
What nurtures our faith and what challenges it today?
Where do we find hope and joy in our lives?
How can our faith build mental strength, wellbeing and resilience?
How has the Covid pandemic impacted upon our faith?
These are just some of the questions that will be explored over the 6 weeks of Lent with a new series of online discussions on the topic of ‘Living Christian Faith’. Faith Renewal at Knock Shrine is all about reaching out to people. These conversations will offer discourse on contemporary issues of faith and church life.
Chaired by Father Eamonn Conway DD, Priest in Tuam diocese and Professor of Theology at Mary Immaculate College, a different theme will be explored each week with guest speakers discussing some of the important questions we all face in living out our faith.
The talks will be streamed online via the Knock Shrine website offering people from all over the world the opportunity to engage in relevant topics and to hear from a range of people, from those in public life such as Baroness Nuala O’Loan and Senator Ronan Mullen to groups of young teachers and members of the clergy.
Thursday 18 February ‘Living Christian Faith in the Family’
St John Paul spoke about how the future of humanity passes by way of the family. Patrick and Linda Treacy, who have four children and run a centre for domestic spirituality called Integritas from their home, will speak about the joys and challenges of living Christian Faith as a family today.
The talk will be streamed live on www.knockshrine.ie/watch-live and on the Knock Shrine Facebook page each Thursday evening during Lent at 8.30pm.
