Re/Generation (formerly titled the 20/30 Project for Mentoring and Leadership) calls young leaders animated by liberatory, life-giving faith to reckon with the injustices of the Catholic institution while incarnating new ways of being Church.
Now in its second year, Re/Generation is a national cohort of Catholic visionaries and change-makers, lovingly called “Re/Generators.” Re/Generators recognize that our faith is the source of holy, unique, and revolutionary potential for personal and common good, while also acknowledging that our Church is responsible for historical and ongoing injustice, particularly toward LGBTQ people, people of color, women, and lay people throughout the world. Digging into this paradox, Re/Generators find fertile soil for decomposing oppressive structures and cultivating the Church we are called to be for our hurting world.
Re/Generators locate themselves in a broader movement for church reform, honoring the wisdom of many generations through Mentoring Triads. Accompanied by both an elder in the movement and a peer mentor, each Re/Generator discerns how their Catholic faith and personal vocation move them to work for justice, healing and transformation in their own context.
Applications for this program are now closed, and information about this year’s Re/Generators will be coming soon!
