Lent revisited

March 22, 2011 in General, News

Presbyterian minister Katherine Myers spoke recently to Pat Coyle in an interview/podcast, part of the lenten series organised jointly by the Jesuit Communciation Centre and Brian O’Leary SJ, Province Delegate for Ecumenism. In her interview, she talks about the origins of the ambivalent attitude her church would have had to Lent and the  freedom they’ve found in recent years to re-visit the season and work out ways to mark it in freedom as opposed to reaction. She also speaks about the ecuemenical aspect of her work in Sandymount, Dubln, with the Methodist and Catholic churches there, and how that was evidenced in the recent Ash Wednesday ceremony for the elderly of all denominations in the Mount Tabor nursing home (pictured) in the village.
