My Catholic Family Letter Campaign
Make sure all Catholic families and their concerns are represented at the Synod on the Family in October 2014!
Write a letter to Cardinal-elect Lorenzo Baldiserri urging him to include theologians with families, women theologians, and theologians who specialize in gender and sexuality at the synod. We need a groundswell of voices to make sure all Catholics are represented!
This Easter recover the story of Mary Magdalene, the "Apostle to the Apostles!"
John's gospel (John 20: 1-9) is proclaimed each Easter, however, unless you live in Canada, you miss a central story of women's leadership and witness on Easter Sunday. Most Catholics don't get to hear the story of Mary Magdalene's faithful refusal to leave the tomb, Jesus's appearance to her and his commission, "Go to my brothers and tell them" (John 20: 10-18). This important story of women's apostleship, leadership, courage and strength is omitted!
But you can recover this story and uphold the tradition of women's powerful witness in our salvation history! Read more!
Discover your rights and responsibilites as a Roman Catholic
Do you know your rights and responsibilities as a Roman Catholic?
According to well known canonist, Fr. James Coriden, the list of rights and responsibilities found in the 1983 Code of Canon Law possess constitutional status, and could be said to be a "Bill of Rights" for Catholics. He says: "...the contextual situation of these canons shows them to be of foundational significance. To call them constitutional is not an exaggeration. The rights stated in the code ... are concerned with matters basic to human dignity and to the meaning of church membership."
