See original poster abut the “Walk of Light” here.


Sponsored by the Dublin Council of Churches


You are most warmly invited to join this ecumenical journey in Dublin on Sunday, 24th November, beginning at 4pm.


As the churches prepare for a “new year” with the coming of Advent we see this journey together as a simple sign of our belonging together as Christians. We set out together and declare publicly, as Christmas approaches, that Christ is the light that has come into the world. With the Walk of Light we set out on our journey through the time of Advent towards the celebration of the amazing reality of God coming onto the world as a vulnerable human being in difficult times. We pray that the Holy Spirit may touch our hearts as we join with each other along the road. The motto for this year’s journey is: Go in Peace to Love and Serve. We explore this theme as we are visiting the three host churches along the way. We stay for a short act of worship in the style of the congregation visited and then walk to the next church.
