This insiders examination on the deep crisis facing the Australian Catholic church asks why Catholicism in Australia has failed to maintain its relevance despite widespread evidence of a hunger for meaning, values, and a renewed sense of community.MoreThis insiders examination on the deep crisis facing the Australian Catholic church asks why Catholicism in Australia has failed to maintain its relevance despite widespread evidence of a hunger for meaning, values, and a renewed sense of community. High profile commentators including Morag Fraser, Paul Collins, and Damian Grace explore the crisis at the heart of Australian Catholicism. They offer a confrontational analysis of the direction for the church set by Rome and of the way in which this is stifling local initiative and alienating large numbers of Catholics from the institutional life of the church.
