A listening session to give voice to the people and strategize for change.
Where: Old St. Patrick’s Church | Hughes Hall
When: Monday September 24th, 2018 | 7:00pm
Why: We are at an inflection point in the Catholic Church. The long, horrifying history of abuse from the hierarchy has once again come to light. The people of the church have been wounded anew, and old wounds have been reopened. We have also been reminded that our cries for reform were not implemented and that a broken system persists. We have been reminded that there is no structure in the hierarchy to give a voice to the people.
At this listening session, Fr. Tom Hurley, leaders of Old St. Patrick’s, and leaders of the Archdiocese of Chicago will listen to your concerns, field questions, and hear statements from anyone in attendance. The goal of this meeting is twofold:
1. To demand action and accountability and make your voices heard by church authority
2. To compile points of action for a lay-led council at Old St. Pat’s that will continue this movement for change going forward.
