ARCC Mission and Goal

To bring about substantive structural change in the Catholic Church, ARCC seeks to institutionalize a collegial understanding of Church in which decision-making is shared and accountability is realized among Catholics of every kind and condition. It affirms that there are fundamental rights which are rooted in the humanity and baptism of all Catholics. To this end ARCC developed and works to implement a Charter of the Rights of Catholics in the Church and a Proposed Catholic Constitution.

ARCC informs Catholics, on a regular basis, of their rights, responsibilities, and the issues of the day through publications such as the electronic ARCC News.

ARCC is developing a workshop which will help Catholics identify and understand their rights and responsibilities in the Church, and enable them to exercise their rights and responsibilities.

ARCC grants the Hans Küng award to a person or persons who have exemplified the work for the rights of Catholics in the Church.
