A group of 44 clergy from Bangor Diocese in Wales will visit Connor when they hold their Clergy School at the Farset International Hotel in Belfast from September 7-9.
The theme of the Clergy School is Reconciliation and the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, will introduce this topic when he addresses the clergy on their first evening. Bishop Alan will meet the Welsh visitors again on Wednesday afternoon, on this occasion in the company of Father Tim Bartlett, senior aide to Cardinal Sean Brady.
Other speakers during the three day visit will be Dr David Shepherd, Director of Belfast Bible College, and Arfon Williams.
The group will also visit Stormont where they are scheduled to meet with representatives of the DUP and Sinn Fein, before lunching at St Michael’s Parish, Shankill.
The Bishop of Bangor, the Rt Rev Andy John, was guest speaker at the Connor Clergy Retreat which took place in Co Durham last June.
