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.
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.
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.
