Catalyst Forum with Bishop Geoffrey Robinson DD Sunday, 18th November 2007.
Some photos from our Catalyst Forum with Bishop Geoffrey Robinson DD who led a discussion on his new book, “CONFRONTING POWER AND SEX IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH: RECLAIMING THE SPIRIT OF JESUS” in the Mosman Community Centre on Sunday, 18th November 2007.
Fr Michael Whelan, sm, Francois Kunc and Marea Donovan responded, commenting on some of the issues raised in the book and then the conversation, which was moderated by Geraldine Doogue, was opened up to all who were present about two hundred and fifty all up.
Comments describing the afternoon as interesting, informative and enjoyable has been the feedback. And as Denise Playoust, the Catalyst Member who was the main organiser of the Forum said in a letter to Bishop Geoffrey, Geraldine, Fr Michael, Francois and Marea:
“Congratulations on yesterday. You all kept the tone positive and hopeful without ignoring the hard questions. I have had a lot of good feedback today. Sometimes good people become disheartened because they feel that “I am the only one in step”, events like yesterday make them realise that they are part of a community which is very much alive and tuned to the teachings of Jesus”.
So thanks to all of you who were able to attend the Forum.
