I handed on to you what I myself received…
1 Cor 11:23

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

For 2018, our topic will be “Handing on Faith – Crisis, Challenge and the Great Commission”.  

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