Student Apostles [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
Student Apostles BY KEVIN AHERN One segment of the lay population that is too often overlooked by Church leaders and official documents is Catholic college students. Kevin Ahem reflects on the apostolic vocation of the student. For over a century, Catholic college students have played an important, yet all too often underappreciated, role in the life of the Church. Inspired by their faith and moved by their youthful idealism, young Catholics have sought to live the Gospel in a wide variety of ways —from establishing small faith communities on college campuses to launching national and international campaigns promoting social justice. Every day around the world, millions of undergraduate and graduate students are living out a truly apostolic vocation, one that is rooted in the call of Christ and that takes shape in four key relationships. First and foremost, their vocation calls students to explore and develop their relationship with God. Young adulthood forces students to make the f...
The Laity's Participation in Public Life [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Laity's Participation in Public Life BY RICHARD R. GAILLARDETZ The Second Vatican Council called on all Catholics —and in particular the laity—to play an active role in public life. Richard Gaillardetz takes up this vision and applies it to the debates surrounding recent health care legislation. In this context, he explores the proper role of bishops, experts, and ordinary Catholics in bringing the values of the Gospel to bear on the world of politics and public policy. The aftershocks of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) opposition to certain elements of recent health care legislation are still being felt in the Church months later. Religious communities that supported the legislation are being subjected to harsh and unwarranted punitive measures and the Catholic Health Association, whose support of the legislation was crucial to its passage, is being maligned by right-wing groups like the Catholic News Agency. Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, current presiden...
The Future of Ministry [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Future of Ministry BY JOHN L. ALLEN, JR. Following the Second Vatican Council, new forms of lay ministry burst onto the scene. Lectors and eucharistic ministers, directors of religious education and youth ministers, lay pastoral associates and parish life coordinators —all helped reshape our experience of the parish, and our expectations of lay involvement. John Allen reflects on this ministerial explosion in light of the larger demographic forces shaping the future of American Catholicism. Earlier this year I was in Chicago to keynote the annual conference of the National Association of Church Personnel Administrators (NACPA), which is composed of folks struggling to help the Church integrate contemporary best practices in human resources and business management. It's largely unheralded work, but critical if the Catholic Church is to avoid the administrative meltdowns that too often mar its public image and impair its moral authority. I was asked to talk about American Catholic...
CO-WORKERS IN THE VINEYARD [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
CO-WORKERS IN THE VINEYARD All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world. Most do this by working in the secular realm; some do this by working in the Church and focusing on the building of ecclesial communion, which has among its purposes the transformation of the world. Working in the Church is a path of Christian discipleship to be encouraged by the hierarchy. The possibility that lay persons undertake Church ministries can be grounded in Scripture and the teachings of the Church, from St. Paul to the Second Vatican Council and in more recent documents. "Sharing in the function of Christ, priest, prophet, and king, the laity have an active part of their own in the life and activity of the church. Their activity within the church communities is so necessary that without it the apostolate of the pastors will frequently be unable to obtain its full effect" ( Apostolicam Actuositatem, n. 10). Today in parishes, schools, Church institutions, and diocesa...
PASTORAL CO-RESPONSIBILITY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
PASTORAL CO-RESPONSIBILITY Trusting in the grace of the Spirit which the Risen Christ guaranteed to us, we must continue on our way with renewed energy. What paths can we take? In the first place we must renew our efforts for a formation which is more attentive and focused on the vision of the Church, of which I spoke and this should be both on the part of priests as well as of religious and lay people to understand ever better what this Church is, this People of God in the Body of Christ. At the same time, it is necessary to improve pastoral structures in such a way that the co-responsibility of all the members of the People of God in their entirety is gradually promoted, with respect for vocations and for the respective roles of the consecrated and of lay people. This demands a change in mindset, particularly concerning lay people. They must no longer be viewed as "collaborators" of the clergy but truly recognized as "co-responsible," for the Church's being and action, thereby fos...
Baptism as the Basis of Ministry [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
Baptism as the Basis of Ministry BY PAUL LAKELAND In the wake of the clergy sexual abuse scandal, Paul Lakeland asks: How can the laity save the Church? In his Catholicism at the Crossroads, he spells out 10 steps toward a more adult Church. Here we take up Step 7: The need for renewed attention to the sacrament of baptism as the basis for the understanding of all ministry in the Church. We have already discussed the need for the Church to become more aware of the teaching of Vatican II on the centrality of baptism, the close connection between baptism and mission, and the common priesthood of all the faithful that follows from the sacrament. That general call relates to the situation in the local parish community. Because the Catholic Church has a strong theology of orders and a clear and distinct ordained ministry, we can easily overlook the fact that baptism is a call to ministry. All baptized Catholics have the obligation to explore the ways in which we might serve the mission o...
Lay Leadership in Catholic Institutions [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
Lay Leadership in Catholic Institutions SUSAN K. WOOD, S.C.L. In the United States, there are hundreds of Catholic institutions—hospitals, charitable organizations, colleges, universities, and schools —that were founded and run for generations by religious orders. For some time now, the leadership of these institutions has been passing into the hands of lay Catholics. Susan Wood reflects on this historic shift, suggesting a model of lay leadership that could be extended beyond her example of health care to other Catholic institutions. It may be time for Catholic health care leaders to move beyond connections to"the charisms of our sponsors" into a new era when the whole notion of sponsorship is rethought from the perspective of a lay leadership model. The "charism of our sponsor" approach does not fully address the realities of sponsorship today for several reasons. Some systems, formerly sponsored by communities with different charisms, have merged and must now seek a new identity ...
Exceptional Pastoring [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
Exceptional Pastoring BY MARY M. FOLEY More than 400 lay men and women in the United States serve as parish life coordinators, appointed by their bishop to lead a parish in the absence of a resident priest pastor. This small, but significant, group of ministers offers new stories of lay leadership in the Church. Mary Foley shares her own story. I am one of the few people I know who have been able to do what they most wanted to do in life. For the last four years, I have had the rare, joyful, and privileged opportunity to pastor a Catholic parish as a lay woman. This ministry is rare; fewer than 500 men and women currently serve as pastoral leaders of parishes that do not have a resident priest pastor, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. Those who serve have titles like parish/pastoral life coordinator, parish director, or pastoral administrator. My service in this ministry ended when a new bishop decided to appoint only resident priest pastors in parishes...
TEN STEPS TOWARD A MORE ADULT CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
TEN STEPS TOWARD A MORE ADULT CHURCH There are thousands of proposals we could make for working toward a more open and accountable Church, but here we will look at 10 that may be among the more important or urgent issues to be attended to right now. Some will be easier than others. Some require only that the Church take seriously what it has always possessed. Some will take a measure of flexibility and openness to new ideas. Some may even look for radical change. 1. The whole Church needs to make an option for the poor and marginalized. 2. The lay/clerical relationship needs to move from one of child/parent to one of equality. Adult behavior among the laity is nonnegotiable. Acceptance of the laity as equally adult is nonnegotiable for bishops and clergy. 3. The laity and the clergy need to become better educated in the history of the Catholic tradition. 4. Seminary and ministerial training should be for ministry in real life. 5. We need to insist on genuine parish and diocesan past...
