Initiatives Moving Forward – 2016 and Beyond

       

 LOGO 2001

CCCR will focus on finding ways to collaborate with the archdiocese to bring about the mission of the Church while also maintaining our integrity as an organization which calls for change. We are

  • Actively building relationships with directors of archdiocesan offices
  • Acting when our new bishop is appointed to develop a positive, collaborative relationship
  • Continuing to build the Lay Email Network as a channel of communication and solidarity

Council of the Baptized continues to offer a venue for expressing concerns of conscience. In 2016, we will address the many issues concerning women in our Church. We will continue to consider "Ethics of Citizenship," and welcome other concerns that people bring forward. We do this through

  • Monthly Forum discussions open to everyone
  • Formal recommendations to the archbishop regarding women or other issues
  • Publication of position papers and position statements
  • Endorsing programs for action

Council of the Baptized Open Forum, March 13, 2018

  

Join the discussion of our Vatican II orientation with theologian Catherine Michaud, C.S.J. on Tuesday, March 13, 7:00 p.m.  It is at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 700 S. Snelling Avenue in St. Paul. 

Deepening our Vatican II Spirituality

Like many church councils before it, Vatican Council II effected an enormous change in the spiritual identity of Catholics. Still, fifty-six years later, Catholics feel insecure about what the Council has called us to embrace. Questions still nag at us. We are asking, among other things:

  • *How did this enormous change happen?
  • *Why did it happen?
  • *Why, over five decades later, does there seem to be such resistance to this Council? 
  • *What exactly does it mean to be a Vatican II Catholic? What is a Vatican II spirituality?
