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.
Accelerating Catholic Church Reform
"In solidarity with our brothers and sisters all over the world who follow Jesus Christ, we in the USA seek reform and systemic change in the institutional Catholic church to effect the full participation of the laity in church governance and discipline.” ACCR is establishing ACCR Diocesan Councils in all Latin Rite Archdioceses and Dioceses throughout the U.S. They will function as "shadow councils" in the places where Vatican II mandated councils exist and as Diocesan Monitors where they do not. In addition they will begin to create ACCR Parish Communities in all parishes somewhat based on the Small Christian Communities model. Check out their new journal: The OMG! Journal (The "Oh my God!"-journal).
