Next chapter of Catholic Church in Ireland ‘will be different from last’ – Archbishop of Armagh

Ireland’s Catholic Church could find itself “increasingly marginalized in public debate”, its most senior bishop has warned, but Archbishop Eamon Martin has said it must remain “prophetic”.

Culminating on the release next month of the Synodal Path of the Irish Church position paper, which saw tens of thousands of Catholics across the country take part in nine months of consultations, Dr Martin said the next chapter in the life of the Irish Church will be different from the last.
