worker-priests - the theology

Fundamentally, the underlying theology of the worker-priest initiatives is one of solidarity. This is as irresistably clear and powerful a purpose to those called to it as it is incomprehensible or merely weird to those who are not. It is quite different to models of chaplaincy to x, y and z.

It seeks to overcome the separation that exists between 'the church' (conceieved of as the institution) and the world of work.

It seeks to serve the church (as institution and as the wider, mystical body of Christ).
