Who Are We Post-Vatican II Religious Now and Where Are We Headed? This is the theme of articles in this issue of the CRC Bulletin. This topic was the subject of regional meetings that took place from May 2013 to March 2014. Each meeting included a presentation by three panelists followed by a reflection inspired by the latter and the discussions that followed. These articles present highlights of what was said.
For each region, the articles are preceded by a text written by a member of the CRC Administrative Council. It gives an overview of the meeting that took place. Pages 3 and 4 are also worth reading. These pages give context to this issue of the Bulletin and present the most recent statistics.
