The 2018 Conference of European University Chaplains (#CEUC2018) is taking place in Dublin from the 4-8th June 2018.
CEUC 2018 will be hosted by CN3 (the Chaplaincy Network at Third Level in Ireland) which includes chaplains from universities, colleges and institutes of technology across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Ireland’s heritage and history provides a deep well of spiritual insight and wisdom. From the prayer of St. Patrick to the life of Brendan the Navigator to the idea of the Anam Cara (Soul-Friend), there is so much to be learned from those who have gone before us. Through the theme for this year’s conference ‘Our Ancient Future’, delegates will be exploring what these ancient traditions, wisdom and practice can mean for ministry and service in Europe’s universities.
The Keynote Speakers will focus primarily on this theme, while the workshops and papers will explore chaplaincy and pastoral care best practice in universities in the global context.
