A vibrant civic society in Ireland today: The role of the Church10 March 2023
If you missed this talk by Church of Ireland Archbishop John McDowell which took place in Benburb Priory, Co. Tyrone, you can watch it back now.
In this talk, organised by the Royal Irish Academy North-South standing committee and Benburb Priory, Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, John McDowell shares his views on the Church's role in the development of civic society. The introduction is delivered by Andrew Mayes MRIA, Former Erasmus Smith's Professor of Hebrew at Trinity College Dublin.
This lecture is a celebration of the hope offered by the civic virtues evident in Ireland, inside and outside the churches. The Church is one of many parts in the body collective of Irish society. It has a particular role to play in ensuring this long moment of socio-political change is not one of societal breakdown but breakthrough.
