Faith Talk by Fr Austin Monday 7th February at 7pm Becket Centre
One of the greatest challenges the church faces today is to be inclusive. Pope Francis urges us to be a church where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live according to the Gospel.
There can be no future for the living church without this vital sense of inclusiveness. There must be space for everyone. The church will be less than what Christ intends it to be when issues of inclusion and equality are not fully addressed. The vision of Christ, committed to make the church the house for all peoples, a church where there is less exclusion but more an encounter of love, forgiveness, inclusiveness and solidarity.
