Faith comes from hearing the Word of Christ

 

Ecumenical Bible Week is an exciting and successful venture which is now in its fourth year. It includes parish-based events around Dublin and surrounding areas.

For 2017, our topic will be "Faith comes from hearing the Word of Christ".  

There'll be debate, talks, music and (we hope) lots of participation.
