The Domestic Church

The Domestic Church

This centre explores how the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland can be renewed through a recovery of the importance of the home, the domestic church, founded upon the integrity of marriage and the human ecology of the family. This is seen as imperative as we move from an understanding of the Church which placed the priesthood as central, to an understanding of Church which places the experience of love and relationships, first found in the family, also at the centre of its life. Those in spiritual leadership in this emerging Church will often be mothers and fathers of children who reflect the values of stability, obedience and life-long conversion in daily family life.
