The first of three Connor Diocesan Services for Pentecost was held in St Patrick’s Parish Church, Jordanstown, on Wednesday May 14.
Special services will take place in each of Connor’s Archdeaconries. The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy preached in Jordanstown (Archdeaconry of Belfast) and will also preach at the services in Ballymena (Archdeaconry of Dalriada) on Tuesday May 20 and Lisburn Cathedral (Archdeaconry of Connor) on Thursday May 22.
Every year during Lent Bishop Alan runs a series of seminars across the diocese, and this year the theme was Discipleship and Ministry.
“These special Pentecost Services are a follow up to the Lent courses and Renewal of Baptismal vows,” said Bishop Alan. “I want to invite everyone to come together to celebrate our faith as people of God in Connor Diocese.
“The services are open to all and I would love to see as many people coming along as possible.”
The services in Ballymena and Lisburn Cathedral each begin at 7.30pm.
