Adelaide Chancellor on governance review panel

Adelaide Archdiocese Chancellor Pauline Connelly has been appointed to a national panel convened by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference to conduct a review of the governance and management structures of Catholic dioceses and parishes.

The review was a recommendation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse after the Commission concluded that the governance and management of some dioceses and parishes contributed to the child sexual abuse crisis.

Issues to be covered include transparency, accountability, consultation and lay participation.

Among other organisations, the review will consider the approaches to governance of Catholic health, community services and education agencies, as suggested by the Royal Commission.
