Session 3

What’s Really Going On? The Root Causes of the Current Crisis

The Catholic University of America will host a day of talks, which will constitute the third of a series of planned conferences on the Church’s current crisis. The sessions for this day are devoted to a deeper analysis, presenting competing views of the role of sexuality and of clericalism. These sessions are complemented by a panel of experts in organizational behavior, who help analyze the present crisis in these terms. Finally, a discussion roundtable of Catholic journalists from across the spectrum explore how these deeper analyses might be better reflected in the media narratives about what is really going on.
