The Church of Ireland Theological Institute (CITI) has announced a new initiative aimed at offering resources for Christian discipleship to lay people.
Over the course of four weeks in June, institute staff will offer a one-hour virtual class online. This course offers resources for your spiritual life and opportunities to learn new practices of Christian discipleship to resource your faith during social distancing.
Weekly meetings through Zoom led by members of CITI’s academic staff will include a presentation and interactive discussion about practices of Christian spirituality and will conclude with an exercise or activity for you to try at home. By gathering, praying and learning with the same group of Christians weekly, you will also receive encouragement and fellowship and offer these gifts to others.
Classes will be held on Monday mornings from 11am until 12 noon, beginning on June 8. Class schedule is as follows:
8 June: Knowing God: An Invitation to the Journey of Discipleship
Revd Canon Dr Maurice Elliott
15 June: Spirituality in a time of abstinence: lockdown with Mary Magdalene
Dr Brigid Nichols
22 June: Spirituality and Failure: Seeing Ourselves in a New Light
Revd Dr Patrick McGlinchey
29 June: The Psalms: Biblical Company for the Journey
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. When you sign up, you will be given an easy link to enter the online classroom. The class is free during Covid–19 restrictions but is limited to 25 participants.
