U2 ‘church service’ held in Dublin

'U2charist' held in band's hometown

A church in Dublin has conduced a service based on U2’s music.

The so called ’U2charist’ was attended by 150 people at the Anglican St George And St Thomas Church yesterday (April 1).

Organiser Greg Fromholz said: “We’re reaching out to the youth. There’s a deep Christian message in U2’s music.”

During the service, the band’s songs were sung instead of hymns. They included ’I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ and ’One’.

The services have occurred in Australia, New Zealand and Britain and were created by Sarah Dylan Breuer in April 2004 for a service in Baltimore in the US, reports BBC News.
