Topic

This seminar will begin with Professor Lennan exploring  the grounding of ecclesial leadership in an understanding of the Church and its mission; approaching leadership as a form of ministry. He will explore the need for collaboration in the Church, and a spirituality appropriate for mission and ministry. Professor Lennan will also provide critical perspectives on how leaders might help their communities negotiate the challenge of change.

Professor Faggioli will examine the nature of ecclesial reform in the Church, with particular emphasis on changing Church structures in history and today. He will explore why the one Catholic Church has a variety of ecclesial communities, in order to address the issue of leadership across today’s different ecclesial entities. Professor Faggioli will identify ways in which leaders can learn from ecclesial crisis and a troubled ecclesial past, in order to arrive at ecclesial solutions.
