Archbishop Dermot Farrell of Dublin has established a Task Force on a Church for the Dublin of Tomorrow, under the title Building Hope.
During his homily for the Chrism Mass the Archbishop declared:
‘It is the Church as a whole that is ‘ministerial’ and all its members share in that responsibility. Parish by parish we need to encourage the active incorporation of all the baptised in the life and responsibilities of the Church.
“Every member of the Church, starting with the young, will participate in the synodal practice that henceforth will be part of the life of the Church. Clergy must try to walk together with women and men with ever greater enthusiasm and without thinking that we already have the best answer or all the answers.
“I want the Task Force to stimulate reflection and creative thinking across the whole community, in parishes and in organisations committed to the well-being of the people, to guide a process of dialogue which will continue as we develop and implement our plans for the future.
“I have asked the Task Force to complete its work by the end of the Summer.”
