Sustaining Roman Catholic Pastoral Leadership Excellence

The Catholic Church in America is in the midst of a dramatic shift. Once dominated by a hierarchy of priests assisted by nuns, North American Catholic churches are increasingly more democratic and offer expanding opportunities for lay leadership. That shift showed up in a Lilly Endowment-supported program called Sustaining Pastoral Excellence. In the midst of the historic shift toward power sharing, the program’s application to the Catholic Church became a question about the very nature of church leadership. Three pilot programs unveiled a series of questions about the nature of leadership excellence that was not based in the expertise of consultants or in the trained behavior of senior church figures, but in the heart and spirit of those who lead, both ordained and lay. Access the intriguing, downloadable 14-page report on the program from the Resources for American Christianity website.
