Published: March 29, 2019   

How can the laity provide leadership in the Church now and for the future?

In this episode of Arkansas Catholic Asks, Aprille Hanson of Arkansas Catholic talks with Dr. Sherry Simon, a clinical psychologist and a member of Christ the King Church in Little Rock. Dr. Simon is the president of Pax Christi Little Rock, a peace and social justice group that was reestablished in Arkansas in the fall of 2016, part of Pax Christi USA. She is also active in the diocese, including as the first layperson and first woman appointed to the Clergy Personnel Board and as a victims assistance coordinator. We discuss her roles in ministry and the larger role of laypeople in the Church.
