Ballymena event to focus on proclaiming the gospel
THE challenge of applying faith to life and proclaiming the gospel will be the focus of a discussion in Ballymena next month, with commentator Breda O'Brien the keynote speaker.
Baroness Nuala O'Loan and Ballymena parish priest Fr Patrick Delargy will also speak at the round-table, which has the theme 'Living Faith: Go Proclaim the Gospel'.
"This will be an occasion for people to explore ways in which each of us can most effectively and usefully put all our talents at the service of the Gospel and the Church, and share our experiences of how we respond to the call to 'Go and proclaim the Gospel'," said Baroness O'Loan.
"There will be plenty of opportunity, in small groups, to talk - if people want to - and to listen to others talk about living faith and there will be time for questions to the speakers and general discussion."
The Ballymena parish has developed a tradition of hosting annual round-table discussions to help people think through their faith and the challenge of living it.
"Why not take this opportunity to visit Ballymena for the day, shop in the morning and come to the round-table gathering in the afternoon, or just spend a few hours in the company of others thinking about being a Christian and living the Good News?" added Baroness O'Loan.
Living Faith: Go Proclaim the Gospel will be held in the Parish Centre, All Saints' Church, Ballymena on Saturday June 6 from 1.45-5pm. To register or for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 028 2563 1236, 079 2708 9125 or 077 6997 4970.
