Boston College Church in the 21st Century Series
As a Catholic university, Boston College seeks to be a bridge between Catholicism and contemporary society. The Church in the 21st Century initiative proposes to assist the Catholic Church in exploring the issues emerging from the clerical sexual abuse crisis that has shaken the trust of many Catholics and non-Catholics in the Catholic Church. The project has three foci: first, understanding more clearly the roles and relationships of lay men and women, priests, and bishops in the Church of the 21st century; second, identifying and exploring the critical issues that Catholics face in living, deepening, and handing on the faith to succeeding generations; and third, developing a contemporary understanding of sexuality in the light of Catholic tradition and beliefs. The Church in the 21st Century does not intend to take the place of those in the Church ultimately responsible for resolving these issues, but rather to fulfill the role of a Catholic university in providing a forum and resources to help the Catholic community-- lay men and women, priests, and bishops--transform the current crisis into an opportunity for renewal
