Australian Reforming Catholics

What We Do

We provide opportunities for people to share their ideas, prepare submissions to the
Church hierarchy, provide information, and advocate for reform i.e., converse, inform,


We share ideas with one another about the richness of our faith and what we need to do to practice it.


We provide a forum where theological, social and moral issues can be examined and evaluated.


As we are the Church, we speak out on the changes that must take place if we are to have teachings and practices that reflect what Jesus taught.

Prayer of Australian Reforming Catholics

Jesus, our friend, through whom we see something of the mystery of God, help us
in our efforts to reform structures, teachings and practices in the Church that
developed over time from your simple command that we love one another.

Help us to discern and express what is in keeping with your Spirit and to inspire
others to join us in the task of making the Church a visible sign of what your love

Enable us to make known biased teachings and practices that hurt and confuse
those who seek you with willing hearts.

Give us the courage to speak and act in seeking necessary reform in the Church.

Empower us to work with the same love, compassion and truthfulness that showed
in everything that you said and did.

May we be instruments in bringing about change so that more people feel happy to
say ‘Our Church’ when they speak of the community or path that leads them to you.
