Basic Church Community has come together to demonstrate a desire for active and communal liturgy, a desire for co-operation and fellowship, a desire for reinterpreting the gospel in an existing situation, a desire to come together around a common issue. The promotion of BCCs is a answer to the threats raised by individualism, consumerism, impersonal relationships, superficial religious practice and unconcern for others. The group consists of about 35 members on Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada,Some members are ex nuns, priests and lay people, all enlightened Catholics.

Catholic Network for Women's Equality (CNWE) is a Canadian, feminist-focused, support and advocacy group for women and men in the Roman Catholic tradition. As a Canadian organization, we connect, support and represent people who seek full dignity, justice and opportunity for women within the Catholic church and throughout the world. For over thirty years members of CNWE have shared a faithful commitment to social justice for all women. We celebrate the fact that we are part of a long history of women’s contributions to the Christian faith. Our movement embraces a broad range of Catholic women and men across Canada for whom an inclusive church that is accountable to all of its members is important. Our work for women’s equality in church and world is internationally respected and part of a network of pro-change Catholic movements around the globe.

We are a faith community of men and women empowered by our baptism in Jesus' Spirit to reach out to others in their need as Jesus did. We also provide support for married Roman Catholic priests, their family and friends.
Dignity Canada Dignité is Canada's organization of Roman Catholics who are concerned about our church's sexual theology, particularly as it pertains to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons. We work in collaboration with other Catholic organizations seeking reform in our church's leadership and teachings. Membership is open to all who share our concerns.
Saint Brigid of Kildare Catholic Faith Community Society of Calgary is a place of welcome, joy, support, exploration and love for those who desire to participate in the growth and renewal of the Roman Catholic church.
It is also a place for anyone who wishes to experience the love of God through a praying, worshipping, and caring faith community.
We are a group of people from many walks of life committed to gathering in the spirit of Jesus and his followers while striving to live out the Gospel message of radical love, hope, and freedom. St. Brigid’s members are actively involved in exploring the Christian tradition in all its past, present and evolving breadth, depth, and complexity. We are positive, critical, questioning, skeptical, creative and hopeful in our feelings and understandings of what it is to be Catholic and Christian in today’s world. While valuing the ancient traditions of the church and the early apostolic communities, we are exploring what it is to be people of faith in the 21st century — in terms of theology, liturgy, ecclesiology, Biblical studies, community-building, spirituality and all other aspects of modern faith life.
Please join us, as we create vibrant community together!
Formerly known as "the Carrot", we are a small faith community which meets twice each month in Toronto, Canada. Our liturgies are rooted in the Christian/Catholic tradition and in our present experiences. We have a strong commitment to social justice. Usually our liturgy consists of listening to and reflecting on God's word. Our biblical readings, various prayers, and songs are in inclusive language. The Scripture passages are usually those used in the Common Lectionary on the particular Sunday -- as a way of our being in touch with the universal church. Responsibility for planning our prayer service is rotated among the community members on a voluntary basis. After the liturgy we share a light lunch, a sort of agape, that is an integral part of our get-together.
