  • The breakdown of trust throughout Irish society is so serious that it should be a major preoccupation of anyone with pastoral responsibility. The problem goes far beyond the boundaries of the Church, but as followers of Jesus, Church members can respond proactively, as this short booklet demonstrates. In for articles , two from church of Ireland clerics, one from a lay member, and finally one from a Jesuit champion for social justice , examination is made as to how broken trust might e restored.

    The former Dean of Leighlin, the Very Revd Gordon Wynne, provides an inside view about how the Church might approach the vital matter of broken trust. The Dean of Ferns, the Very Revd Leslie Forrest gives a contrasting and radical alternative clerical perspective. That is followed by a laypersons thoughts - those of the Mark James, a parishioner of Ferns parish. Finally, Fr. Peter McVerry SJ illustrates how the law has failed, and how trust might be restored in it. Ideas are shared about how the booklet might be used for future study.

    This booklet is the collective work of the Working Group on Theology and Social Justice (Republic of Ireland) of the Church in Society Committee.
