The Church in the 21st Century
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
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.
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
that are facing or will face the American Catholic community
in the 21st Century.
