Third Session: Where to from here.
A presentation of a statement, coming out of the morning sessions. This might contain something like the following:
- A call for a new model of Church
- Calling lay groups to work together to make this model a reality
- Asking that this process continue towards a full assembly of the Irish Church.
- This presentation will be followed by a general forum which, hopefully, will shape the final document.
This gathering is open to all, lay and clergy. At some suitable time during the day there will be an opportunity for lay groups and individuals to gather, with a view to looking at the possibility of forming some type of lay ‘umbrella group’ comprising of existing groups and interested individuals.
