Four leaders of diverse experience and expertise met at Cabrini University on Monday, April 1st to discuss how Catholic clergy, lay people, and leaders are responding to the problems posed by abuse and oversight problems in the Church, and to help participants think creatively about renewed Catholic leadership in the Church. The problems revolve around power and culture.
Since we are all the Church, the Body of Christ, we need to build “people power”. The hierarchy needs to value and engage the assets of the lay people and create a synergy of those gifts. We need to increase “co-responsibility” for the future of the Church.
