04Nov A self-help Christian Community?

Chris McDonnell, writing in this week's Catholic Times, reminds us again of the need to look to new models of leadership and priesthood. "The idea of a person being called from their community, to serve their community has lost credibility. It is this concept that we ought to explore. That is why the first tentative steps in formation for pastoral leaders in parishes rather than the closure of parishes or the creation of ever-increasing numerical entities is a courageous and welcome initiative."
