for Shared Ministry
WHAT IS PARISHIONERS' CALL?
Parishioners' Call is a movement promoting a respectful and safe space for Roman Catholic parishioners to talk and act.
It is parishioners who support and empower the Church. Without us, there is no Church.
Now it’s our call.
We call for shared ministry of women and men, married, single and celibate. We call for engaged and committed parishioners, working together as Roman Catholics and Christians.
We believe women and men are created equal in God’s image, and are called to work together to spread God’s Word.
Jesus created no priests nor any clericalism. He simply said to the women and men at the Last Supper:
‘Do this in memory of me.’

THE PEOPLE’S SYNOD
September 27 - 29th, 2019
PARISHIONERS’ CALL have been personally invited to participate in the People’s Synod in Baltimore, 27 - 29th Sept, 2019. We wish our Pamela Perry all the best as she represents us there, in a multifactorial listening exercise of the Church’s laity by the Church’s laity.
We deeply regret that we cannot at this time share the names of all our speakers.
We call NOW for a Roman Catholic Church where all may speak openly!
