Catriona Fletcher’s paper opens by reflecting on Pope Francis’ dream of ‘a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channeled for the evangelisation of today’s world rather than for her self-preservation’. She then asks how the church can centre itself on pastoral mission, and what might that look like in Scotland today?
