Description: The city of Detroit announced in July that it would go into bankruptcy, setting in motion the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history. Archbishop Allen Vigneron was installed as the archbishop of Detroit in 2009, a year after General Motors declared bankruptcy. Critics blame Detroit’s troubles on the struggles of the U.S. automotive industry to adapt to a changing global marketplace, corruption in city hall and public employee unions, which negotiated generous pensions for their members that now cannot be funded. But Archbishop Vigneron sees hope – he sees an opportunity for the Church to be the Church. He joins us to explain.
