Structures for Leadership: Are They Working?

Nearly forty years after the Vatican II Council, the church is still seeking the right formula for engaging lay members in its institutional life. These conference proceedings offer an array of opinion on how effective the church has been in fostering a sense of shared responsibility for its life. Speakers include journalists, researchers, scholars, and prominent lay Catholics who caution the church that without more vigorous efforts to activate the laity a slide into nominal Catholicism may be in the offing.
