Power to the People: The Lay of the Land with Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ

Author and journalist Thomas Reese, SJ provides an overview of the clergy sex abuse crisis, assessing the effectiveness of steps that have already been taken, reflecting on the latest developments, and outlining the challenges and opportunities ahead as we seek to move from a culture of clericalism to a culture of synodality in the Church. Fr. Reese also takes listener questions about the crisis and how lay people hold Church officials — at every level — accountable. This teleconference was the first in the series “Power to the People: From Clericalism to Collaboration” throughout 2019.
