November 3 - 5, 2006 Call To Action National Conference

This year we are celebrating 30 years of Call To Action

That's ten years past the old record held by Rip Van Winkle. The invitation elaborates.
This passage from Exodus inspires the theme for our conference this year: "I AM! Rise Up, People of God!"

I'd pondered setting up a group to buy the Cousins Center to house a Museum of Progressive Catholicism. A CTA convention program gives you an idea of what the tour would be like.

P.S. Internet search results for "museum progressive catholicism" included Peter Nixon's post Do Commonweal Catholics have a future?

Update: Lena Woltering will speak on the lay synod movement.
She was coordinator of FOSIL (Fellowship Of Southern Illinois Laity, a CTA affiliate) ...

Update 2: Grant Gallicho at Dot Commonweal posts that VOTF withdraws from CTA conference
Citing the women-priests' planned eucharistic celebration...

Jimmy Mac [McCrea?] posts a comment.
The detractors of VOTF who view the organization as the Spawn of the Liberal Devil have tried to misquote, misrepresent and generally torpedo the organization. It hasn't worked and it won't work.

The sad thing is that the masses of sheeplike Pew Potatoes simply can't be energized to take their roles seriously, so the harvest remains large but the laborers few.

Update 3: Bill Mazzella follows Jimmy Mac with another sic comment.
...CTA runs a successful conference. Its problem is it does not know what to do the rest of the year. Notices, instructions, and updates are rare with CTA. With VOTF they are a weakly occurence.
