On Saturday, January 5, about 50 people gathered in Mundelein to pray alongside the US Catholic Bishops. Our goals were simple: pray with Bishops, stand with survivors, advocate for lay leadership.
Our Statement to Cardinal Blase Cupich: “We believe that without lay governance, the church risks becoming an irrelevant institution of the past, rooted not in the saving message of Jesus, but made rotten by privilege, protectionism and patriarchy. Despite all that has happened, we Catholics on the Crisis Response Council (and those whom we represent) have stayed in the pews, educated our children in the Catholic faith, volunteered and donated our time, talent and treasure to a church whose leaders have lost their way.”
