Ecumenical St. Patrick’s Day Service
“Speak to us of God!” this quote from a legendary dialogue between Celtic princess Eithne Alba and St. Patrick is the theme for this year’s ecumenical service on St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 6pm. For the first time since 2019 the Cathedral is able to welcome back this gathering of the 14 churches from the Orthodox, the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter tradition who are in membership of the Dublin Council of Churches. The service remembers and honours Ireland’s ancestor in faith, Patrick, Patron Saint and exemplary figure of courage and steadfastness in the face of adversity. All are welcome to join this celebration in word, song and traditional Irish music. Rev. Andrew Kingston of Methodist Centenary Church, Leeson Park will address the gathering.
