Catholic Church Reform International
CCR Int'l is seeking the
of the church.
We are a
of reform groups as well
as individuals. If you would like to collaborate with us to
continue on the path set by Vatican II, you have come to
the right place. Welcome!
If there is to be any reform
of any kind in the Catholic Church, it must begin with the
people having a voice.
The need has never been greater than it is at this moment
in time for the People of God to
unite our voices
so as to be strong enough to be heard in our Church.
Our special advisor,
Sr. Joan Chittister, reminds us:
"Until we raise a common voice we will not only not be heard,
we will not even be listened to in the light of larger issues
and larger groups, all clamoring for attention."
Alone, the pope cannot change the world. A pope for
the people must have a people for the pope. This
initiative gives us a means of being with Pope Francis.
