The Gospel of Luke


Archbishops Diarmuid Martin and John Neill launched a unique venture to spread the good news of the Gospel of Luke throughout their Dioceses.

Over the coming weeks and months, specially commissioned copies of the Gospel of Luke, will be distributed widely. This is the Church Liturgical year of St. Luke and it is the Gospel being read in churches throughout the year.

As part of the year of Evangelisation, this is the latest in a series of ecumenical initiatives spearheaded by both Archbishops. 100,000 copies of the Gospel of Luke have been commissioned for this project. It will be followed up with further resources to help people understand and pray the Gospel, including a DVD for families and children – “Luke the Book”. Both churches are planning a joint youth pilgrimage to Taizé, the ecumenical place of prayer in France, is planned for later in the year.
