Francis has a dream.  Join us.  Make that dream a reality in your local Catholic community.

Develop strategies for grassroots change to make that vision a reality in each parish community.

Empower and support each other to take the  vision and strategies back home for refinement and action planning.

Stay connected, share your struggles, celebrate successes together, and watch our vision go viral.

Pope Francis:
