Who We Are

One Spirit~One Call is a response to the Spirit moving in the Catholic Church today. We are women who embrace the vision of a Church that truly honors the gifts of all its members. We are not leaving; we choose to remain in the Church, working to see our vision realized.

 

 Mission

One Spirit~One Call works to promote justice for all women in the Catholic Church and to achieve systemic reform within the Church, through a ministry of support, education and empowerment.

 

Beliefs

  • The Church is the whole people of God: lay women and men, clergy, and hierarchy together.
  • Women are children of God through creation and baptism and are equal to men.
  • In spite of societal progress, women are still excluded from major governance roles in the Church.
  • The Church must reclaim the reforms established by Vatican II and restore its teachings.

 

Goals

  • Educate women in the history of the Catholic Church and their roles in the Church.
  • Increase awareness among women and men of the longstanding injustices to women in the Church.
  • Ensure that the untapped potential of women is fostered and embraced in the Church.
  • Provide strong role models for Catholic girls and young women.
  • Give Catholic women a forum to express their stories, ideas and goals.

 

Actions

  • Sponsor events to educate, provide support, and empower women in the Church.
  • Determine further actions based on the needs and interests of grassroots participants.
