The 13th Irish Summer Institute will begin with orientation in Dublin, where participants will get acquainted and begin exploring the religious and political background of “The Troubles,” in Northern Ireland. The Institute will then visit to Armagh, the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland. A visit to the walled city of Derry will include meetings with religious and political leaders and “cross community” centers where reconciliation efforts are greatly changing Irish society.

There will be a visit to the internationally renowned Corrymeela Peace Centre. On the Sunday midway through the Institute, participants will worship in Presbyterian and Roman Catholic churches together and be hosted for lunch and fellowship in the homes of local parishioners. A visit to Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland will include meetings with Northern Ireland’s community, religious and political leaders.
