Church no longer fit for purpose

The RTE 1 religious documentary 'Faith in Crisis' broadcast on Sunday showed that there are still radical and serious changes needed within the Irish Catholic Church.

The ordination of women priests; the introduction of the laity into the running and administration of parishes; the full and proper investigation of all clerical child abuse in every diocese in Ireland North and South; and the total reorganisation of church powers away from Irish bishops and Rome towards transparent church and laity structures are all priority issues.

The church is a world apart from mainstream public opinion, judging from 'Faith in Crisis'.
