New book by Canon Hyland
Church of Ireland Publishing has announced the publication of a new book by Canon Cecil Hyland. Journeying in Faith – A Walk with Christ will be launched by the Bishop of Limerick, Killaloe & Ardfert in the Music Room of Christ Church cathedral, Dublin, on Monday 11 December at 5.30pm. Those who wish to attend the launch should confirm their attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org
Cecil Hyland, who was ordained in 1963, served curacies in Belfast and Dublin before returning to Belfast in 1967 as Church of Ireland Youth Officer. Six years later he was appointed Dean of Residence in TCD and subsequently served as Rector of Tullow and Rector of Howth before his retirement from the stipendiary ministry in 2005. In addition he has been the Dublin and Central Director of Ordinands, a member of the Dublin Diocesan Synod and General Synod, a member of the chapter of Christ Church cathedral, and has been involved in theological and adult education and the ministry to retired clergy. This wide experience, together with his palpable integrity and substance that commands respect and attracts devotion,
suggests that his book, described by the Revd Ted Woods as ‘an accessible introduction to the Christian faith’ will be a valuable resource for those who wish to ‘establish a connection between what is said and what is experienced’.
More immediately, on Thursday evening in St John’s Hall, Helen’s Bay, Does Christ Matter? An Anglican and a Jesuit in Dialogue, by Canon Timothy Kinahan, Rector of Helen’s Bay, and the Revd Brian Lennon SJ, will be launched. The authors are founder members of the Inter Church Group on Faith and Politics. Their book has been published by Messenger Publications at €12.95/£11.
