Using their extensive experience in working for a better Church and society, the authors of this book offer a game plan to revive the Irish Church and help it transition into a more honest and open Church.

Not yet in print. Pre-order.

Many believe the death knell of the Catholic Church in Ireland has been sounded. Church attendance is in decline, new vocations for priests and religious are disappearing and the Church's voice has been silenced in the public square following both the clerical abuse scandals and being on the losing side in the major morality battles of the last 30 years.

However, this book contends that it is only one version of Catholicism that we now see collapsing in Ireland and it is not something to be grieved over. It is an outdated, clerical structure that no longer nourishes the spiritual life in Ireland. This is therefore an opportunity for radical change. A time to build up parishes as places of welcome and inclusion. A time for lay people to take control and for women to take leadership roles.

This change must happen now, before it is too late. Including speeches from a national conference hosted by Columba Books in May 2018, Five Years to Save the Irish Church is a clarion call from some of the most respected and challenging religious commentators of our time. Using their extensive experience in working for a better Church and society, the authors of this book offer a game plan to revive the Irish Church and help it transition into a more honest and open Church.
