Maynooth College Reflects on COVID-19 Presentations

Location

In recent months there has been huge media coverage of medical and economic issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but religious questions have less often been addressed. Where is God in the pandemic? Can we draw meaning out of the present suffering? How have parishes been affected, and what can church communities do in these times of restrictions? Finally, what could be the lasting effects on church life?

Members of the theology and philosophy faculties at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, have been reflecting on this topic. As a result, a day-conference on COVID-19 using Zoom was held in January, Below you will find the links to the presentations that were held on the day
