SAINTS AND CELEBRITIES:  An Ecumenical Study Afternoon for  All Saints’ Day

Society for Ecumenical Studies

SAINTS AND CELEBRITIES:

 An Ecumenical Study Afternoon for

 All Saints’ Day

 Friday, 1 November 2019

2 p.m. – 5 p.m

 Mount Street Jesuit Centre

 114 Mount Street, Mayfair, London W1K 3AH

                Nearest underground stations: Bond Street or Green Park

 

Speakers:

Revd. Dr. Sarah Hall (URC)

 & Fr. Dominic Robinson SJ

Both serve on the Roman Catholic/United Reformed Dialogue in the UK

 

The event will start with refreshments at 2 p.m. and finish with Vespers at 4.30 p.m.

While the Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican churches have a myriad of different understandings of the cult of the saints, the traditions flowing into the United Reformed Church would seem at first sight to disregard a belief in the saints as an unnecessary accretion. Yet parts of the URC tradition hold up certain individuals from whom we can learn how follow Christ. This day conference explores some of what the churches believe about saints today and what we can learn and receive from each other. This dialogue is placed in the context of the growing significance of celebrity in our culture.
