Expanding the Tent: Young Adult Leadership and Co-Responsibility in the Catholic Church

CSP 2024

For leaders of the Church, young adults are top of mind in nearly every sector — it is a matter of deep concern for bishops and pastors, as well religious brothers and sisters, and leaders of Catholic organizations. Of all the issues facing the Church, young adult leadership is one of the few that is galvanizing, that unites Catholics across divides. As we consider the future of the Church, there is concern for the pipeline of leadership, for formation of emerging lay leaders to serve in critical roles. There is concern for recruitment and retention, specifically of young adults to leadership positions, and for developing a culture that has a diversity of thought, representation, and action. Young adults are not an addendum to the leadership of the Church — they must be afforded a central role.
