Synodality – a Call to Everyone

ACI Zoom discussion – Thurs July 22nd 2021, 8.00 p.m. – led by:

Professor Tom O’Loughlin

As the priestly manpower crisis deepens in Ireland, the call for ‘more vocations‘  becomes ever more plaintive.

But what does synodality mean in our Catholic understanding of ‘vocation’?  Is that still too often all about clergy and religious – when all of the baptised faithful are now called to become ‘first responders’ in an era of crisis?

Might the ‘priest crisis‘ itself be a result of an unbalanced theology of Priesthood, Ordination and Baptism?

Is every baptised person now being called equally to missionto help keep hope and faith alive among those we love and meet?

Dr Tom O’Loughlin’s profound understanding of the history of Catholic Theology is in high demand by all who study the problem of Catholic Church renewal today.

Join us on Zoom on Thursday July 22nd at 8.00 p.m.
