“…And there’s no exit in any direction
‘Cept the one that you can’t see with your eyes.”

– Bob Dylan

Many of us today are living through what has been called a ‘crisis of meaning’. Catholic philosopher, Augusto Del Noce, named it the ‘Crisis of Modernity’.

At its heart are a series of paradoxes:

  • Despite being more affluent than ever, we feel a sense of spiritual impoverishment.
  • Despite being more connected than ever, communities are falling apart.
  • Despite having a surplus of information, we feel there is no truth or that we can’t get to it.

Is this right? Where might we be going wrong?

​Join us as we ask and attempt to answer some of these difficult existential questions. At this Benburb Priory conference, hosted by Marcás (Of More Christ and Benburb Priory Podcasts) and featuring leading thinkers, seekers, and evangelists from across the world; we will wrestle with some of life’s big questions.

It is our aim to help Christians, and others, look for signs of Hope and ultimate meaning. We wish to help navigate these crises, guided by the riches of our Judeo-Christian tradition, the world’s collective Wisdom, and the God who still lives.

Isaiah 43:19

19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

Food and drink will be available from Stables Coffee Shop throughout the day. (Not included in the ticket price)

A limited number of rooms are available for anyone wishing to stay at Benburb Priory for the conference. We look forward to welcoming you to Benburb Priory.
