Who We Are
CTAWW 2015
The purposes of Call To Action - Western Washington (CTAWW) are religious, educational, and charitable. It is our goal to help effect changes in the Catholic Church. We embrace the national Call To Action platform and pledge ourselves to pursue, with the total Catholic community, the key reforms set forth in the following mission statement and the goals adopted for 2014-2015
We are people of God called by the renewing Spirit of Vatican II to be prophetic voices in our church and the world in modeling the Gospel of Jesus. Our goals for 2014-2015 are to: Promote a sense of community, fellowship, and mutual support in Call To Action, locally and nationally. Offer educational events and resources that contribute to the understanding of issues in light of evolving theological development. Promote advocacy on issues central to a just and inclusive church. Promote visibility of CTAWW in the wihole community.

Call To Action Western Washington joins in the

mission of our national organization which

educates, inspires, and activates Catholics to

act for justice and build inclusive communities

through a lens of anti-racism and anti

oppression principles.

Our Purpose

Our Leadership

We love the Church and want the gospel message of compassion and openness to be heard in a world torn by oppression and prejudice. We are convinced the Church must be open and just in it’s structures and practices. We all have the obligation to make the Church one of inclusion and joy. Our hope is that we may help to “rebirth” the Church fromthe grassroots level, and as we do so we nourish our faith with other CTA members who share our persuasion. CTA works for the kind of church personified by Pope John XXXIII glimpsed at the Second Vatican Council, and also - CTAWW BOARD OFFICERS….
