Boston College:
The Church in the 21st Century

The Church in the 21st Century initiative began in 2002 as Boston College’s attempt to address the issues underlying the clerical sexual abuse crisis. The initiative identified three focal issues: handing on the faith, the roles and relationships of lay men and women, priests, and bishops in the Church, and sexuality in the Catholic tradition. In its first two years, the Church in the 21st Century attracted 25,000 to over 130 events it sponsored or co-sponsored, had 55,000 visitors to its Web site, distributed its publications to 160,000. The Church in the 21st Century will continue beyond its originally announced two-year period and become a permanent Boston College Center with a focus on the contemporary issues and questions that are facing or will face the American Catholic community in the 21st Century.
