St Paul's Seattle Mass

Rev’d Dr Hannah Cleugh

(Chaplain and Solway Fellow, University College, Durham University)

Hannah Cleugh

12 – 4pm 10th October 2015

Church of Ireland Theological Institute, Dublin

The Affirming Catholicism (Ireland) Annual Theological Seminar offers an opportunity to reflect on the challenges facing Anglicanism and the wider Church from the perspective of catholic Anglican theological thought.

Each year, a speaker is invited from the catholic Anglican tradition who will inspire and challenge.

This year’s speaker is the Rev’d Dr Hannah Cleugh, Chaplain and Solway Fellow, University College, Durham University.

A member of the Board of Affirming Catholicism in the Church of England, her academic work has a focus on the history of the Reformation era.

She will deliver two addresses at the seminar and preach at the opening Eucharist.

The theme of the seminar this year – “called to be resonant” – reflects how the strengths of the catholic Anglican tradition, particularly the embrace of the imagination and the commitment to hospitality, can contribute to a renewal of the Church’s mission and witness in a strongly secular cultural context.

Hannah Cleugh will share theological and practical insights from her perspective as a chaplain in higher education, ministering as a priest amidst a community predominantly made up of unchurched younger people.

The seminar is open to members of the Church of Ireland, lay and ordained, and other Christian traditions.  Lunch is included.

The day will conclude with Evensong in the College chapel.

The cost of attendance is Euro20/£15 (paid on the day).

The Church of Ireland Theological Institute is in Braemor Park, Dublin 14.

There will be a book stall provided by the Good Book Well.
