About Us

Our Mission

FutureChurch seeks opportunities for all Roman Catholics to participate fully in the life, governance, and ministry of the church.

Our Vision

FutureChurch works for

Just, open and collaborative structures for Catholic worship, organization and governance

A return to the Church’s early tradition of both married and celibate priests

A return to the Church’s earliest tradition, modeled on the inclusive practice of Jesus, of recognizing both female and male leaders of faith communities

Regular access to the Eucharist, the center of Catholic life and worship, for all Catholics.

Guiding Principle

Future Church's activities grow from a spirituality based on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Eucharist, the Spirit-filled beliefs of the faithful, and the teachings of Vatican II.
