By Lynn Glanville

ICON LAUNCH

ICON Community is an invitation and an opportunity placed in our path by God, the Archbishop of Dublin stated at its launch service on Saturday afternoon (March 28). The service, during which the community’s leader, the Revd Eoghan Heaslip, was commissioned by Archbishop Michael Jackson, took place in the Methodist Centenary Church, Leeson Park,
where members of the community gather twice a month.

A large number of family, friends, Eoghan’s clerical colleagues and well wishers joined ICON members for the celebration.
Eoghan’s wife Becky, who helps lead the community, and their daughters, Rachel,
Abigail and Evelyn took part. Also present was Fr Kieran McDermott, Episcopal Vicar for Evangelisation and Ecumenism with the Archdiocese of Dublin and former President of the Methodist Church in Ireland and now the Church’s Home Mission Secretary, the Revd Dr Heather Morris along with Methodist Minster, the Revd Andrew Dougherty.

In his sermon, the Archbishop explained that ICON is a community of God, a community of networks and a community of hope. “ICON seeks to share and to spread the holiness of God through relationships of faith, hope and love, relationships that are unconditional and at the same time are demanding,” he suggested.
