Cardinal Christoph Schönborn Archbishop of Vienna

On Thursday 13th July, I had the pleasure working with Bridge PR on covering the visit of Cardinal Christoph Schönborn to Limerick.

Press Release:

Pope’s lead Cardinal on new pastoral direction for the family, Amoris Laetitia, to speak at Limerick conference.

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn to address ‘Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family’ conference at Mary Immaculate College on tomorrow week, July 13th

Conference a key moment in build up to World Meeting of Families 2018

A cardinal recognised as a lead reformer within the Church hierarchy and chosen by Pope Francis to present Amoris Laetitia – the papacy’s letter on the ‘family’ – will be the star turn at a major conference here next week.

‘Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family’, which will be held at Mary Immaculate College,  Limerick tomorrow week, July 13th, is the first major conference to be held as part of the build up to the World Meeting of Families next year in Ireland.

Key note speaker at the afternoon and evening gathering will be Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who was chosen by Pope Francis to present Amoris Laetitia following the two Synods on the Family in 2014 and 2015.  The Cardinal, who is Archbishop of Vienna, will give two separate addresses, one specifically on Amoris Laetitia and the other, a public lecture in the evening on ‘The Parish: Family of Families’. During the afternoon session, also, he will lead an academic discussion on Amoris Laetitia one year on.

The event is being organised by MIC’s Institute for Pastoral Studies and, according to its Director, Fr. Eamonn Fitzgibbon, will be a timely opportunity through one of the Pope’s closest confidants to get a deeper understanding of Pope Francis and the Church’s direction on the family.

“The World Meeting of Families next year will be the biggest single event in the life of the Church on this island since the Pope’s visit in 1979.  The build up to it is of huge importance also as it will effectively provide for an ongoing conversation about the family and how we see it and value it in Ireland.  Our conference on July 13th will be one of the biggest platforms to date for that conversation, not least because ofCardinal Christoph Schönborn.  He’s as close to Pope Francis as we can get when it comes to Amoris Laetitia, which is a very significant letter from Pope Francis on his understanding of family.

“There has been quite an amount of controversy about Amoris Laetitia, with some hardliners in the Church arguing it has gone too far.  Others say it hasn’t gone far enough. Some say it is ambiguous.  Cardinal Schönborn will be able to give clarity to us in a way that no one else can other than Pope Francis.  We’re very much looking forward to his visit.”

Fr. Fitzgibbon said that the need for a reforming Church and the leadership of Pope Francis and the likes of Cardinal Schönborn, has never been greater in the context of the family as we know it.

“Amoris Laetitia and the World Meeting of Families could not be better timed.  It’s undeniable that the family, as we have known it, is changing in many respects and is challenged like never before in Ireland. The World Meeting of Families, and the expected visit of Pope Francis in 2018, comes in the midst of a ‘perfect storm’ for the Church, much of it of its own making, which challenges the Church’s teaching on family.”

In addition to the Cardinal’s involvement, other speakers at ‘Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family’ include Martin Kennedy, a freelance trainer and facilitator with church and community groups who has recently been appointed as Pastoral Programme Coordinator for the World Meeting of Families, and Jessie Rogers, a Limerick based lecturer in Sacred Scripture at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, a Godly Play trainer and on her way to qualifying as a spiritual director.

You are cordially invited to attend the annual Mary Immaculate College’s Fourth Year Media and Communication Students screening of their documentaries and advertisements.
The themes this year include:
Skinscapes, The skin is an empty canvas that some people chose to paint. Tattoos have become a norm in society yet there is still a stigma with tattoos in the workplace and there is currently no legislation in the country to be inked. While they still face backlash, the tattoo community are proud and happy to be a canvas of colour.
Join Our Boys: Padraic and Paula Naughton talk about their three boys, Archie (10) and his twin brothers George and Isaac (5) each of whom have been diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The neuromuscular disease is fatal in all cases, and there is no treatment or cure.

Requiem For A Dame: This documentary goes behind-the-scenes of the Limerick Panto Society to reveal a world of hard work and dedication while touching on Limerick’s long history of the Christmas Pantomime.
The Hub Effect: A look at Learning Hub Limerick, a site comprised of 3 main buildings and almost 2 acres of green space which houses the staff and admin team of the Learning Hub – and examines the input the Music Hub, the Science Hub and the Health Hub have on the local community.
Far From Home: So often International students at universities are seen as statistics whose experiences at their host college are looked at from a two-dimensional narrative often seen as irrelevant to the university body, once their experience at the school is done. Far from Home aims to personalise the International students at Mary Immaculate College while examining their Irish experience.

We are in the final stages of the Offline cut of the Film Limerick Trilogy. The short films, The Apparel, Day Off and Date:Time are now being spotted by the music composers and the final preparations for the delivery to the online and sound mixing team will take place in the coming weeks.

In what has been an ambitious project, realised by Film Limerick Project manager, Ronan Cassidy, and Irish writer and Director Gerry Stembridge, the trilogy of films has brought together both professional and aspiring film makers in Limerick to create a film cultural legacy that will hopefully continue for many years to come.

As editor on the three films, I have had the opportunity not only to work with three new directors and experience their vision for the stories but I have also had the opportunity to train in three assistant editors and give them a practical and first person view of the craft of editing, here at the facilities of Limerick Institute of Technology.

Maeve Humphreys, Patryk Czekalski and Mark Griffin have all worked on scenes for the films as well as give their interpretation and input to the ideas of the films. Similar training opportunities were given on set by Gerry, Ronan and the DOP Paddy Jordan to the different production departments, giving this project its unique selling point for future investment. In some cases the trainees have had other opportunities to work on professional productions around the country which in turn cements the early success of the Film Limerick Trilogy before its even been completed.

As the online post production, grading and sound mixing are nearing, there is a sense of anticipation for the premiere screening of these films by the cast and crew. Also with the impending new academic year in the third level institutions such as Limerick Institute of Technology and Limerick College of Further Education, it is hoped that current and incoming students take advantage of the possible future opportunities that may arise from the back of this project.

Details of the premiere of the trilogy will be made on the Behind the Scenes website HERE.
