The Faith and Life Convention is a forum for people from across the diocese, and beyond, to gather together and to take part in a range of conversations about the meaning of faith and its relevance to every area of our lives. We invite you to join us for our third Faith and Life Convention on Saturday 30th September 2017 in Our Lady and St Patrick’s College, Knock, Belfast beginning at 10am.

This year our convention will focus on Faith in the Family and we are delighted to welcome Cardinal Kevin Farrell, head of the new Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life to be our keynote speaker. It is s a privilege to welcome Cardinal Farrell to Belfast and we look forward to him providing a thought- provoking input that will help us in our Preparations for The World Meeting of Families in Dublin next Summer.

Our discussion will be picking up on all the hot topics reflecting on how the Church, and we as people of faith, position ourselves in current debates and engage more readily in the public square. An essential element of the day will be the afternoon workshops which will explore the place of faith in many different areas of our lives. Each participant can attend two workshops which will be booked on a first come, first served basis. So book early!
