Local conference needed to discuss pope's vision

October 28, 2013

Pope Francis has stated that he wants to change the Church so that guidance of the Church is not simply top-down, but horizontal as well.

Along with many parishioners of Edmonton, I would like to see Archbishop Smith call a conference about improving our parishes concerning the following:

As editor of the WCR, I believe you have the responsibility of forwarding readers' letters to the appropriate Church departments for their information and responses.

When this is done, your excellent paper will become a transformation tool for the Church authorities to take proactive measures to change the Catholic faith from being sluggish to being vibrant.
