Scripture Summer School 2020 & DCU – MA Theology 2020 and Applicants for Scholarships

Scripture Summer School 2020

Each year, a Scripture Summer School takes place in Dublin (Holy Cross Diocesan Centre) and, more recently, in Knock, Co Mayo.  Over the years, people have enjoyed being together to talk about their faith and to learn about the Word of God. The experience of being “together in one place” has been a significant and enjoyable dimension. However, because of the C-19 crisis, we have decided to offer our Scripture Summer School as usual but, this year,  online. However, there are also some advantages. It may be that with this medium we will reach a much wider audience and people who might not make it to Dublin will be able to take part. Also, the cost has been reduced significantly. The opportunity to view the presentations at your leisure may also be a plus.  Our sincere hope is that the Summer School will still be an enjoyable learning experience for everyone. The cost this year is €40. Each participant will receive access to all eighteen presentations with full notes and study questions as well as being able to take part in all five Zoom conferences.  Any queries should be sent directly to the administrator. Enclosed in this email is a poster: perhaps you may like to send this email and the poster to friends who might be interested in faith and the Word of God.   All details regarding registration, payment and participation. may be found on using this direct link to the dedicated webpage.  For more information contact: Dr Kieran J.
