Dublin, Ireland, Jun 21, 2016 / 14:38 pm
The Fighting Irish are headed to the Emerald Isle, with plans to establish a new center for dialogue between faith and reason in Dublin.
The Archbishop of Dublin made the announcement June 20 that Notre Dame University will head the initiative at University Church in St. Stephen's Green.
"I see the establishment of the Notre Dame-Newman Centre for Faith and Reason as an opportunity for University Church to return to its original vocation as a focal point for the reflection on faith and reason," Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said.
The Centre will focus on reaching out to young people. It will give attention to liturgy and music, a lecture series, and other activities that integrate faith and reason, service, and cultural events in and around Newman University Church.
