Michael Morwood's Biography

Michael Morwood
Michael Morwood resigned from priestly ministry in the Catholic Church in 1998 following the banning of his book Tomorrow's Catholic. Understanding God and Jesus in a New Millennium by the then Archbishop of Melbourne, Australia, George Pell.

Michael's particular interest is in helping adult Christians examine what they believe and why they believe it, what they imagine and why they imagine the way they do. He is the author of ten books including Praying a New Story, Children Praying a New Story and It's Time: Challenges to the Doctrine of the Faith.

In December 2010 he was a speaker in the Evolutionary Christianity series hosted by Michael Dowd, who invited listeners to: "join thirty-eight of today's most inspiring Christian leaders and esteemed scientists for a groundbreaking dialogue on how an evolutionary worldview can enrich your life, deepen your faith, and bless our world."

In June 2011 he was a keynote speaker, with Miriam Therese Winter, on the theme of "Prayer" at the Atlantic Seminar in Theological Education.

In the past ten years Michael has worked with progressive Christian groups in 33 USA states, in most provinces in Canada, as well as in Ireland and England. Michael and his wife, Maria, live in Perth, Australia.
