St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church
1500 Franklin Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414

This conference is about Church Reform strategy. Our goal will be to learn to strategically collaborate with one another even when it seems like we’re engaging in the work of church reform in different, or even contradictory, ways. We will explore how to leverage different preferences, approaches, and tactics so that together we will move closer to our shared goal of an inclusive and liberating Catholicism.

We’ll draw from many sources, including:

  • Call To Action’s founding conference, working papers, and figures like Hans Kung.
  • The organizing frameworks developed by the Ayni Institute and Momentum Community trainers.
  • adrienne maree brown’s book Emergent Strategy.
  • Liberation Theologians like James Cone, Kelly Brown Douglass, and Jon Sobrino, to name a few.
