The Bishop of Connor received a warm welcome in Lisburn Cathedral for his second Lent seminar on ‘God’s Mission and the Church Today,’ held on March 20.
A crowd of around 100 people from different parishes attended the talk by the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy.
During the talk, Bishop Alan expressed thanks to his PA Mrs Rosemary Patterson, who retires later this month, and his words were warmly applauded.
Bishop Alan’s talk focused on his five Marks in Mission, and he suggested ways people can further their own mission.
There was a break for refreshments and fellowship mid-way through the evening, and Bishop Alan responded to a number of questions at the end.
The Bishop’s first Lent Talk was held in St Patrick’s, Jordanstown, on March 15. An earlier seminar, scheduled for March 5 in Bushmills, was cancelled due to the weather.
