Catholic Church Reform, a global community of people supporting decentralisation of the Church, held a Worldwide Teleconference on Wednesday 4th September.  Approximately 30 Catholic Reform Groups from across the globe participated.  The purpose of the event was to co-develop a strategically inclusive reform statement that widely represents the spirit of the collective reform movement modelling the values of Vatican II.  The intention is that the statement and support documents  be presented to Pope Francis and his team of Cardinal advisers.
