Root and Branch Community grew out of Parishioners' Call -
a movement promoting a respectful and safe space
for Roman Catholic parishioners to talk and act.
It is parishioners who support and empower the Church.
Without us, there is no Church.
Now it’s our call.
We call for shared ministry of women and men, married, single and celibate.
We call for engaged and committed parishioners,
working together as Roman Catholics and Christians.
We believe women and men are created equal in God’s image,
and are called to work together to spread God’s Word.
Jesus created no priests nor any clericalism. He simply said to the women and men at the Last Supper:
‘Do this in memory of me.’
