What next for the Catholic Church in the UK?
It's twenty-eight years since Pope John Paul II visited the UK. How has the Catholic Church changed during that time?
Since 1982, the Church's reputation has been badly damaged by allegations of clerical sex abuse and parishes are facing an unprecedented shortage of priests.
Meanwhile, the demographic of congregations has changed due to immigration from Poland, Africa and Asia. There are also continuing tensions between liberal and conservative sections of the Church.
How do you see the Church developing in the future? Has immigration been good for parishes? Can the liberal and conservative sections be reconciled? Should there be a smaller and more devout Church? Will you be going to see the Pope?
