Insights from the Holy Land: Dublin & Glendalough visit colleagues in the Diocese of Jerusalem
Clergy from the United Dioceses of Dublin & Glendalough have recently returned from Jordan for a joint retreat with clergy of their partner Diocese of Jerusalem. This is the ‘second leg’ of the retreat as clergy from Jerusalem visited Dublin & Glendalough before the Covid–19 pandemic. A selection of reports from the retreat and Archbishop Michael Jackson’s reflections on the visit are below, along with a gallery of photos of innovative church projects and the people with whom they met.
The Revd Rob Clements introduces the first day of their retreat (Sunday, February 26).
Canon Peter Campion, Chaplain of the King’s Hospital School, reports on visits to Mount Nebo, from where Moses saw the Promised Land, and the site of Jesus’ baptism in the River Jordan (Tuesday, February 28).
Archbishop Jackson continued to visit diocesan ministries in the country (Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4).
In addition, the Dublin and Glendalough Council for Mission has offered a litany in response to the earthquakes in Syria and Turkey, which was composed by the Revd Viji Varghese Eapen, who until recently has been Presbyter–in–Charge of the Church of South India’s Dublin congregation.
