Limerick Diocesan Synod 2016 - “Creating Space for Community

“Creating Space for Community
A conversation with Níall McLaughlin”

The Limerick Diocesan Synod organisers decided that the presence of Níall McLaughlin in Limerick gives an opportunity to arrange a lunchtime gathering for those with a particular interest in Níall’s architectural work to meet and discuss his work with him.

Níall’s work is wide ranging and included in his presentation will be some of his work on churches. This seminar will be of special interest to both professionals and students in the fields of architecture, art, engineering, planning and members of the Limerick City community with an interest in its development.

Lunchtime seminar,

Date: 7th October, 2015
Time: 1.00 p.m. – 3.00 p.m.
Venue: Strand Hotel, O’Brien & Wogan Suite (Level 6)

A light lunch of tea and sandwiches will be provided

“Creating Space for Worship – Lessons for Life from Architecture”
An illustrated lecture by Níall McLaughlin

Níall McLaughlin’s Church designs have recently been acclaimed, both in specialist journals and in leading British newspapers. His liturgical influences include the work of the German architect Rudolf Schwarz who himself was influenced by Fr Romano Guardini. Guardini was a major influence on the movement for liturgical renewal and reform which found expression in Vatican II. Among those who were influenced by Guardini was Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict) and Jorge Mario Bergoglio (now Pope Francis) who began work on a doctoral dissertation on Guardini which for some reason he never completed. This evening will be of particular interest to those who have an interest in the arts, architecure, liturgy, worship and of course to Synod delegates.

Date: 7th October, 2015
Time: 6.00 p.m. – 7.30 p.m.
Venue: Strand Hotel, O’Brien & Wogan Suite (Level 6)
