Nearly 2000 attended the inaugural gathering of the American Catholic Council in Detroit in June of 2011. As of September 2011, over 50,000 people have visited our website. Of these, 3800 people across the US and Canada have subscribed to the ACC newsletter. Of those, over 1000 have joined the Assemblies Community Network to facilitate organizing in the grassroots.
By our confirmed count, there were 81 Listening Sessions involving just over 4000 persons across 22 states and provinces in the US and Canada. But the number is likely higher than that, as we continue to hear of sessions that we were unaware of and are not accounted for in our database. To read the report on those sessions, click Soundings of the Faithful: Listening Sessions on the Way to Detroit. You can also view a short video about the Listening Sessions on our Video Resources Page.
