‘Into Darkness, Great Light’ – Walk of Light returns to city streets
The Walk of Light is back on the Streets of Dublin. On Sunday November 20 at 3.30pm the congregations of the Leeson Street and Rathmines area of South Dublin together with the Chaplaincy Centre of Trinity College Dublin and under the umbrella of the Dublin Council of Churches (www.dublincouncilofchurches.ie) invite you to come and join them on their annual pilgrimage.
The walk begins in Newman University Church on St Stephen’s Green, leads across the Green and down Grafton Street and into Trinity College Chapel. There will be stops outside the gates of St Stephen’s Green, at the Molly Malone Statue, and on the Front Square of Trinity College.
This year’s theme for the inter–church pilgrimage is “Into Darkness, Great Light” as participants contemplate the great afflictions of our days: war, housing emergency and economic hardship, and climate collapse. “In the face of these all–consuming and frightening challenges the Advent message of the coming of God’s light is more urgent than ever,” the organisers say.
Donations are invited for this year’s charity, St Vincent de Paul. All are welcome.
