CCRI Synod Registration Form

Pope Francis has initiated a 3-step process over the next two years with the first step opening avenues for all the people to come together and make our voices heard. We are especially encouraged to learn that he wants to have the widest participation possible: “Special care should be taken to involve those persons who may risk being excluded: women, the handicapped, refugees, migrants, the youth and the elderly, people who live in poverty, Catholics who rarely or never practice their faith…. people of other faith traditions and people of no religious belief.”

With this understanding, we invite you, wherever you are in this spectrum, to join our online gatherings to open our hearts and listen to one another. We invite personal stories and real-life experiences when you needed support and could have benefitted from the compassionate support of a church community. Let us begin to imagine together the kind of Church we’d like to create.

Please let us know if you would be interested in participating in CCRI online synodal gatherings (Times and dates to be determined)

Speaking Out with One Unified Global Voice

"...Until we raise a common voice, we will not only not be heard, we will not even be listened to....   

My hope is that by speaking out together - a strong chorus of calls for reform - we can provide a common, a clear, a strong and ongoing voice for the yet incomplete vision of Vatican II.

In common cause, let us band together across the world. By our desire to be heard on particular issues - all of them important - let us not lose the strength of our common voice by reducing it to a whisper.

In light of this, we invite individuals and organizations to join together in making known our opinions for the good of our Church. By uniting our voices, it is not about abandoning the unique work of your organization but rather about how your work can enhance global reform."

Sr. Joan Chittister, CCRI Special advisor

"We have to join our forces in order to reach a real breakthrough in this window of opportunity." Hans Kung, CCRI Consultor

"(The Christian faithful) have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful." (Canon 212 §3)
