The National Call to Action is launching a new project focused on centering our unique Catholic history. The People’s History of Vatican II is the way to harness the wisdom and experience gained during the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. Are you interested in contributing — video recordings, written reflections and art projects ?
Call to Action (national & its chapters) is a Vatican II community. This project, the People’s History of Vatican II will help strengthen our roots, pass on wisdom to the next generation of Catholic reformers, and build long term capacity as a Catholic social justice organization.

(1) What are your earliest memories of the Catholic church? How are they different from the Church you know today?
(2) did you have any hopes for the Second Vatican Council as it was in session? Did those hopes come to pass?
(3) when did you first start to see Vatican II reforms implemented? What did you think of those changes at the time?
(4) What reforms are you still waiting for? What, if anything, would you like to see from a “Vatican III”?
