I’ve been writing this blog for nearly 2 years now and still find communities and websites that I find inspiring. People are doing exciting things in response to deeply held faith and transformative spirituality. They are beginning to live new ways of being ‘catholic,’ in response to their situation either as individuals or communities.
Just today I came across the “Spirit of St Stephen” community. Here’s what they say on their Homepage: “Spirit of St. Stephen’s Catholic Community is an independent Catholic community rooted in Vatican II and Catholic Social Teaching. We believe in the priesthood of all people of faith and center our worship on the Eucharist. We support each other in trying to follow the nonviolent Jesus who was radically inclusive. Justice and inclusion in our worship and in our community support our work for justice and peace in our world. We are living the questions, and listening for the Spirit's guidance. All are welcome.”
More and more communities like this are enriching a prophetic vision of what the church could be. Take a time to view their website or watch the videos that appear on the progressive catholic voice website.
