By editor - 20 November, 2015

10th annual ecumenical journey organised by the Dublin Council of Churches combines liturgy and pilgrimage.

IMG_4865The 10th annual Dublin Council of Churches ‘Walk of Light’ takes place on Sunday 22 November.

The theme for the Walk of Light 2015 is “God has taken the Lowly and raised them on high”.

The theme will be explored in each of the three host churches along the way during a short act of worship which has been put together by groups from across the Christian traditions.

This year all three stops will combine to make one liturgy.

The inter–church walk takes place from 4.30pm to 7pm.

This year’s journey starts at the Mary Immaculate, Refuge of Sinners Church in Rathmines, continues on to St Finian’s Church, Adelaide Road and finishes at St Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street.

People from all walks of life will join the ecumenical journey which is organised in conjunction with the Church of Ireland, Korean, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Ethiopian Orthodox congregations in the area.

Participants gather for the first leg of the journey in Mary Immaculate, Refuge of Sinners, Roman Catholic Church, Lower Rathmines Road, where there will be a welcome and opening prayer.

At 5pm they will depart and walk to St Finian’s Lutheran Church, Adelaide Road, arriving at 5.30pm for the next stage of the liturgy.

They will leave there at 6pm and walk to St Teresa’s, Roman Catholic Church, on Clarendon Street for the concluding prayer at 6.30pm.
