Members of AMRI meet Papal Nuncio

The Executive and Secretary General of AMRI met with the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Jude Thaddeus Okolo, at the Apostolic Nunciature on Thursday last, February 1st.



The recently installed Papal Nuncio to Ireland, Arcbishop Jude Thaddeus Okolo, last Thursday hosted members of the Association of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI) Executive at the Apostolic Nunciature in Dublin. In his address to the assembled group, the Nigerian native urged those present to be prophetic voices in spite of the great challenges that exist in the world of today.

"We should not seek to abandon the task of being a prophet of God just because there is a crisis, or because it is demanding, wearisome and fruitless."

He went on to emphasise the importance of having 'radical persons, prophets' who would shake us 'out of our comfort zones' while also reminding those in attendance that 'prophetical voices have to be exercised with respect, prudence and with good intentions'.

AMRI came into being one year ago following the amalgamation of CORI (Conference of Religious in Ireland) and the IMU (Irish Missionary Union).

Both Sr Kathlen McGarvey, OLA and Fr Michael McCabe, SMA are among the current members of the AMRI Executive.
