The full title of the Conference is The Role of the Church in a Pluralist Society : Good Riddance or Good Influence?

This conference is being organised with the aim of contributing towards the Church’s interrogation of its identity and mission in contemporary society.

Has Church a distinctive voice in the Public Square? Is the Catholic Church, along with other Christian Churches, just another group fighting for a place in society, seeking to further their own interests? Or do Christian Churches have a different standing? A claim to be heard?

We have invited a distinguished panel of speakers to Trinity College Dublin to address questions such as these, to challenge thinking and ways of acting, and indicate a way forward on these vital issues.
