An ancient solution to a contemporary problem?

John Sullivan

David McLoughlin
Fr Tony Flannery
The Scene will be set by John Sullivan, Emeritus Professor of christian Education from Hope University in Liverpool, exploring discipleship and leadership in the Church.
David McLoughlin, the well-known theologian from Newman University in Birmingham, will describe 'an ancient solution to a contemporary problem' - explaining the idea of locally ordained community leaders, as proposed by Fritz Lobinger. 
Our final speaker is Fr Tony Flannery, a Redemptorist priest from Limerick, who will explore how the shortage of priests in Ireland is impacting both priests and laity there and elsewhere - from his perspective as one of the founder members of both the Association of Catholic Priests in Ireland and the International Church Reform Network of Priests' associations and reform groups.
