This project examines discernment in the Church, and is led by Dr Anna Abram and Dr Nick Austin SJ. In response to Pope Francis’ assessment that ‘Today the Church needs to grow in discernment, in the ability to discern’, the project asks what discernment is and why it is so needed today? The project hosted a symposium with a  group of experts from different disciplines and practical backgrounds to explore what is the call for a more discerning Church implies in February 2018.
