.- The Archdiocese of Dublin has expressed the Church’s opposition to the participation of Father Charles Curran in a controversial Theology conference due to be held at St. Patrick’s College in Maynooth, Ireland later this month.
The conference, titled, “The Risks of Theology” is taking place within the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Dublin although officials clarified that the Church is in no way involved with its organization.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said in a statement that “Rev. Charles Curran, while being a Roman Catholic Priest in good standing, has been declared by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith as ‘not suitable and not eligible to exercise the functions of professor of Catholic theology’.”
The statement, they said, was in response to queries regarding Fr. Curran’s invitation to the event.
