PARISHIONERS' CALL

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.

ABOUT US

We are parishioners finding our voices and working together for shared ministry in our Church. Find out more about our Call.

EVENTS

We help you to enable safe and respectful discussion in your parish around shared ministry. Find out more about attending one of our events, or holding your own.

ACTION

Find out more about we can do, our blueprint for change, and our suggested resources.

We would love to hear from you!

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.’
