Joint meeting of Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland bishops
A second meeting of representatives of the Irish Episcopal Conference and of the House of Bishops took place in Dublin on 13 September last. In the context of most amicable and creative discussion, presentations were offered on:
- The ecumenical and evangelistic possibilities provided by the recent International Eucharistic Congress
- The perspectives of the churches as partners in Irish education on current issues in that area
These joint meetings are held in the spirit of the recommendation of the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission that Roman Catholic and Anglican bishops in individual countries should meet from time to time for prayer, fellowship and discussion of common concerns.
