Catholic Church Organizations and Reform Groups
On September 25, 2013 press conferences were held worldwide to announce the joint effort of 100 Church Organizations who had come together to address Pope Francis and his advisors on needed reforms in our Church and to urge them to acknowledge the rights and responsibilities of baptized Catholics to have a say in matters of concern for the good of the Church.
Since then our supporters have told us about many more groups and organizations. We invite you to visit their websites to see what they do and how you might support them.
St. Brigid of Kildare Catholic Church Faith Community
Saint Brigid of Kildare Catholic Faith Community Society of Calgary is a place of welcome, joy, support, exploration and love for those who desire to participate in the growth and renewal of the Roman Catholic church.
It is also a place for anyone who wishes to experience the love of God through a praying, worshipping, and caring faith community.
We are a group of people from many walks of life committed to gathering in the spirit of Jesus and his followers while striving to live out the Gospel message of radical love, hope, and freedom. St. Brigid’s members are actively involved in exploring the Christian tradition in all its past, present and evolving breadth, depth, and complexity. We are positive, critical, questioning, skeptical, creative and hopeful in our feelings and understandings of what it is to be Catholic and Christian in today’s world. While valuing the ancient traditions of the church and the early apostolic communities, we are exploring what it is to be people of faith in the 21st century — in terms of theology, liturgy, ecclesiology, Biblical studies, community-building, spirituality and all other aspects of modern faith life.
Please join us, as we create vibrant community together!
