Join the Catholic Community of Practice for a discussion of how the Catholic clergy sex abuse crisis is relevant for our work in religious education. Suggestions for preparation follow here.
A lay Catholic group called “Catholics for Change in Our Church” formed in the wake of last year’s Pennsylvania grand jury report. They now have become a nonprofit organization and established a website, https://ccoc-pgh.org/.
  • Visit their website and browse it, including the Resources section. Consider the following:
  • How does an organization like CCOC (and perhaps others you’re aware of) suggest an emerging model of religious education for Catholic faith communities and the public? Does it offer us as scholars/practitioners any new directions for our own work?
  • If you read any of the individual items in the Resources section, what do they offer you as new information and insights for your own practice of RE?
  • Other reflections, comments, questions that the topic raises for you in your RE work?
We’ll also allow some time for sharing relevant news and generating ideas for next year.
