Join us in our 2014 Project:

Forum on the Family -
Listening to the Faithful

In October 2014, an Extraordinary Synod on the Family will take place in Rome. How can we, as church, stand with today's families, many of whom experience the church as remote from life? We decided to follow the call of Pope Francis to prepare for this important Synod.

Join a Regional Gathering

Discussion Group
Talking about family experiences

In preparation for the Synod, we are now gathering voices from around the world by inviting all to participate in local or online gatherings to discuss the challenges of family life in the context of Church teachings. The reports of these gatherings will be summarized to give testimony to the lived experiences of the faithful. Go here to see how you can become a part of this wonderful and challenging opportunity. You can speak up knowing that your voice will be carried all the way to the Vatican!

Catholic Church Reform International

CCR Int'l is seeking the renewal of the church.

We are a global network 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.
