Entheos IrelandMinistry of Love
All of our celebrants are registered solemnisers and can hold your full ceremony including the legal parts in your venue… any day of the week.
‘Entheos’ is the Greek root of the word ‘enthusiasm’, and means ‘inspired by the divine within’.
Entheos Ireland was founded to serve people who have been ostracised, marginalised or otherwise left behind by traditional faith paths on the basis of gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, nationality, parental/family status or any other reason.
We live in a world that is changing.
The presumption that the majority of Irish people regularly practise a religion is outdated, and this leaves a gap.
Old communities are evolving and new communities are emerging. Old power structures are crumbling around us.
Many people don’t feel represented by that old world.
Birth, death, union, coming of age, the many and varied transitions and thresholds of human life. These life events are traditionally celebrated and shared- it’s a core part of what makes a community. These are moments when we come together, we connect and make memories, but the old ways don’t always fit.
At Entheos Ireland, we believe that rituals and ceremonies don’t have to be old fashioned.
They don’t have to be a compromise or a cookie-cutter event.
They can be unique.
They can be meaningful.
They can be inspiring.
They can resonate and represent all those who have gathered- AND they can represent your beliefs and that of your partner without being dogmatic or prescriptive.
So instead of feeling you have to choose either/or, why not go for both/and?!
