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.
Taproot Faith Community
Formerly known as "the Carrot", we are a small faith community which meets twice each month in Toronto, Canada. Our liturgies are rooted in the Christian/Catholic tradition and in our present experiences. We have a strong commitment to social justice. Usually our liturgy consists of listening to and reflecting on God's word. Our biblical readings, various prayers, and songs are in inclusive language. The Scripture passages are usually those used in the Common Lectionary on the particular Sunday -- as a way of our being in touch with the universal church. Responsibility for planning our prayer service is rotated among the community members on a voluntary basis. After the liturgy we share a light lunch, a sort of agape, that is an integral part of our get-together.
