These last months, the Catholic Church has been rocked by a number of revelations that have shed light on scandalous behaviours affecting the most vulnerable among us. As disciples of Jesus Christ, how do we continue our mission of spreading the Good News when we feel that our Church is broken? 

The CRC invites women and men religious, priests, deacons and laypersons involved in ministry to take part in a day of reflection, to reconnect to the themes of compassion and wisdom in our faith, renew our hope for healing in the Paschal mystery, and share the realities and priorities of our mission.
