As we approach Ascension and Pentecost, the readings turn to the Holy Spirit. We all realise that the Christian project is really God’s project and not the “property” of any church. Like the disciples in the Gospels, we do our best—remembering, praying, memorialising, proclaiming—but we so must “stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Openness to the future includes listening “to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.”

To listen on your portable device, you may like to download the SoundCloud app (cross platform). Then, click on the file, and it should open in the app. To listen in your car (or other sound system), connect your portable device by BlueTooth to the sound system for playing.
Ecumenical Bible Week 2016: Pentecost to Trinity Sunday
This relatively new project has enjoyed considerable success. This year we’ve expanded the programme in different ways and there should be something for everyone: www.bibleweek.ie.

Scripture Summer School: “The Fire of the Spirit” June 20-24
Over the last 18 years, the Orlagh Bible Week has been a success. It has now moved to a new venue: Clonliffe College. This year’s programme is entitled “The Fire of the Spirit.” The speakers are Jessie Rogers (Maynooth / Orlagh Team), Sean Goan (Blackrock College / Orlagh Team) and myself. The enclosed poster gives details of the programme, locations, costs and so forth. It would be great help if you could make this widely known. If possible, put the poster up somewhere and include it on your website.
With very best regards,
