Communicating The Gospel In A Frenetic World





Sr. Mary O’Brien PVBM


Mary O’Brien PBVM is a native of West Cork and a Presentation sister.


She is currently completing a four-year term as Communications Officer with the Irish Bishops’ Conference in Maynooth, is Theological Adviser to the Communications Office, and Editor of the monthly magazine, Intercom (a liturgical and pastoral resource for people in ministry).

Mary teaches Scripture in St Patrick’s College, Thurles. 


She is an experienced presenter at catechetical and biblical gatherings and has written widely on religious topics, including consecrated life.

Mary’s poetry has been published in several journals. 


Her paper on Paul’s Letter to the Romans, presented at the 2007 Colloquium  at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium in July, will be published later this year



Mary’s two talks will explore issues such as:


The Message and the Media.

Can the message of the Gospel be proclaimed in today’s Ireland?

What can theology offer to the search for authentic ways of speaking, writing or
broadcasting the Word?
