Australian Reforming Catholics

Who We Are

We are a group of Catholics from across Australia who are passionate about the need to
reform our Church, both locally and internationally. Our members are mostly lay
people and include clergy, religious and some bishops.

We seek to set up the means whereby Catholics can influence the needed reform in their Church.

The Second Vatican Council emphasised that the people ARE the Church.

  • ARC is an organisation of Catholics committed to achieving significant change within
    our Church.
  • We wish to see and experience Church structures, practices and teachings which more
    closely reflect the love of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Gospels.
  • We act to highlight issues such as patriarchy and inappropriate hierarchy. We try to
    better understand the simplicity of Jesus’ message of love, justice and peace.
