Come meet with members of our National Planning Committee as we share Food for Thought and Action.  Yes, there will be some complimentary nibbles!    


The journey ahead will demand “critical mass” to be successful; Join with us as we stimulate our collective thinking, wet our appetites for challenging change, and nurture our spiritual commitment to the cause.          

  • Learn about ACC’s exciting pilot Institute on Nonviolent Action and Church Reform, some the developing outcomes of that innovative project, and tentative plans to share the fruit of the Institute to a wider audience;  
  • Learn about the prospect of regional gatherings across the US and Canada in 2013; 
  • Connect with local communities across the ACC Assemblies Community Network;    
  • Learn about other ACC initiatives building upon the impetus of the inaugural ACC gathering in Detroit (June, 2011);

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.
