Archbishop receives Pioneer Ministry Candle
Archbishop Michael Jackson was presented with Dublin and Glendalough’s Pioneer Ministry Candle on Friday, July 28. The candle is one of 11 – one for each diocese of the Church of Ireland – which were lit in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, at the Pioneer Ministry launch service in February.
The candle is a symbol of God on the move and exciting times ahead for the United Dioceses. It will find a home in the diocesan cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, where it will be lit on a regular basis as a reminder of the light of Pioneer Ministry.
Receiving the candle from the Revd Rebecca Hamilton of the Church of Ireland’s Pioneer Ministry Team, Archbishop Jackson said: “The Pioneer Ministry Candle will be a constant reminder of the flame of faith which lightens and inspires the Pioneer Journey which we undertake along with all the other dioceses of the Church of Ireland.”
