12 members of the Danish Council of Churches visited the Faroe Islands from 3-5 October to learn more about the various denominations here on the islands and to gain inspiration for greater ecumenical cooperation. On Monday evening, Mariukirkjan welcomed the Lutheran dean, Uni Næs, and the Council. The visit included four short talks by Fr. Peter Fleetwood, deacon Christian Gabrielsen, Sr. Maria and artist, Ole Jakob Nielsen. The topics covered a brief history of the catholic Church on the Faroes, the catholic Church on the Faroes in 2022, the role of the Franciscan sisters, ecumenical activities, and the architecture and artwork in the church. This was followed by refreshments and time for questions.
