The purposes of Call To Action - Western Washington (CTAWW) are religious, educational, and charitable. It is our goal to help effect changes in the Catholic Church. We embrace the national Call To Action platform and pledge ourselves to pursue, with the total Catholic community, the key reforms set forth in the following mission statement and the goals adopted for 2014-2015

We are convinced the Church must be open and just in it’s structures and practices. We all have the obligation to make the Church one of inclusion and joy. Our hope is that we may help to “rebirth” the Church fromthe grassroots level, and as we do so we nourish our faith with other CTA members who share our persuasion.CTA works for the kind of church personified by Pope John XXXIII glimpsed at the Second Vatican Council, and also -CTAWW BOARD OFFICERS….Betty Hill, PresidentDel Hoover, Vice PresidentPat Callahan, SecretaryJohn Dunn, Tresurer
