Fr Martin Magill and Corrymeela to host ‘Courage to Lament’ to reflect on division caused by conflict

On 21 June, Father Martin Magill of Saint John’s Parish on the Falls Road, Belfast, will co-host along with Corrymeela and the Dean of Belfast Cathedral, Stephen Forde, a ‘Courage to Lament’ Service to mark the annual Day of Reflection acknowledging ongoing conflict and divisions in Northern Ireland.

Following the astonishing national and international response to Father Martin’s address at the funeral of journalist Lyra McKee on 24 April, a group of Catholic and Protestant clergy came together to build a unified Christian response to sectarian and paramilitary violence.

‘Courage to Lament’ follows on from the fifty-day long #CouragePentecost initiative, and will feature film, music, prayer, and liturgy. #CouragePentecost began on Easter Sunday and ran for fifty-days, with an image and suggested act of courage sent out to participants every day. Further information about #CouragePentecost and the daily actions can be found at

Corrymeela also has a dispersed community of over 150 members who commit to living out Corrymeela’s principles of reconciliation in their own communities.
