Reforming the Church: Global Perspectives was launched at St Patrick’s Pontifical University Maynooth last night.

Gerry O'Hanlon, SJ, speaking at the event said:

“Declan Marmion and Salvador Ryan have brought together a collection of 11 scholarly articles on church reform in the key of synodality, which are an important contribution from Maynooth and Ireland to the global project of renewal and reform within the Catholic Church. The articles are scholarly but accessible: they will be of interest not just to theologians, but to pastors, students and indeed to all those interested in the historic nature of what is going on in the Catholic Church over these years. This launch is particularly timely coming as it does in the wake of the recent Synod on Synodality in Rome.”

“This book being launched this evening is a great resource for all those involved in this synodal journey. Warm congratulations once again to Declan and Salvador, and to all the authors: this is a substantial contribution to the synodal pathway of the Catholic Church, and to our wider Christian fellowship, both here in Ireland and globally.”
