Gospel Breakthrough: Transforming the Church

November 3 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Gospel Breakthrough: Transforming the Church

9:00am – 1:00pm, Camilla Room, St. Camillus

The recent wave of revelations regarding sexual abuse and cover-up in the Catholic Church raises new, challenging questions.  How did the church get here?  Why did this happen?  And how can we, the people of God create meaning together to bring about change?  What is the role of the laity?  How can we and the church be renewed?  How can the church return to the Gospel?  These are some of the questions the workshop will explore, concluding with ideas for preliminary solutions and actions the people of God can use to help transform our church.

One goal is for ideas generated in the workshop to be developed further in follow-up forums and other activities to engage more parishioners.

The church needs reform, and this is not the task of one single person, the sovereign pontiff or a certain number of cardinals … but the task of the entire world. – Yves Congar, OP
