PRESS RELEASE 29 August 2018
We Are Church is calling for an Assembly of the people of God in Ireland to propose new Structures for the Catholic Church that will include lay Catholics in all decision-making.
The Assembly will be inclusive, involving all lay Catholics, ecclesiastical organisations, priests and bishops.
In the wake of Pope Francis' visit to Ireland and the scandals in the US hierarchy it is necessary to develop church structures that are transparent, that ensure accountability at all levels and that enable all Baptized adult Catholics to have a voice in decision making.
“Every human organization needs checks and balances. And every baptized adult Catholic needs to be heard and represented” said Colm Holmes.
We invite all who are interested to get in touch to organize preliminary meetings to discuss how best to implement this idea.
Com Holmes, We are Church Joint Co-ordinator.
