Celebrating our First Anniversary (June 10, 2012)

American Catholic Council

Remembering and Celebrating  . . . ACC one Year ago 

June 10, 2012

Dear Friend of ACC1st Ann                                                 GrayGreetings on this first anniversary of the American Catholic Council, convened one year ago in Detroit. Members of our National Planning Committee met this this weekend at Franciscan Center in Tampa, Florida, to address future issues and programs in the works.

We wish to acknowledge the inspiring work of so many in the reform movement collaborating in efforts to support our women religious.  The NunJustice project attained its goal of 57,000 signers to the petition in support of our sisters matching the number of women religious in the US. The petition will be presented to the US BIshops at their Atlanta meeting this Wednesday.

Before the end of June, you can expect our full newsletter updating you on recent ACC initiatives, including the SWOT analysis project, our upcoming Institute on Nonviolence and Church Reform, and our new focus on Intentional Eucharistic Communities(IECs).

We are grateful for your continued efforts to build an adult church that is grounded in the Catholic Bill of Rights and Responsibiltiesadopted one year ago today!

About American Catholic Council

We are a grassroots movement of faithful Catholics, grounded in prayer and informed by the proceedings of the inaugural convening of the American Catholic Council on Pentecost Weekend in June 2011. Grounded in the Catholic Bill of Rights and Responsibilities adopted at that historic gathering celebrating Vatican II, we are dedicated to exercising our baptismal rights and responsibilities as full participants in the mission and governance of the Church, in order to make it more just, inclusive, collegial and compassionate. To that end, we provide action-oriented educational, communication and project resources.
