ACC is going to the Center for Action and Contemplation to participate in a symposium: “The Francis Factor: How Saint Francis and Pope Francis are changing the world” on August 30-September 1st.  On the first night of the conference, ACC will sponsor a separate discussion group on “Francis Factor in changing the Church”.

Why not join ACC leaders at this terrific conference sponsored by Richard Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation for an end-of-summer boost!  We’ll network, dialogue and make plans for bringing the “Francis Factor” into our local churches!
Please email sheilapeiffer.acc@gmail.com if you are coming!

The American Catholic Council (ACC) was formed to act, not talk, around issues of institutional change in the Church focused on governance.  We believe we have been called to be disciples fully participating in creating a just, inclusive and collegial community and  therefore will initiate and collaborate in all actions that provide a multi-dimensional focused approach to change in the institutional Church.
