VOTF Fall Action for 2007 leading
to the National Convention CONSCIENCE + COURAGE = DISCIPLESHIP
As VOTF’s National Convention nears, we move from an internal grounding in conscience to the more active role of disciple. These surveys will provide you with a tool to assess how your diocese is doing in financial accountability, shared governance and child protection. The results of these surveys will be summarized and compared diocese to diocese at the convention giving each person a foundation for discussion and action. VOTF member's embrace their Baptism. One way we work towards our goal of structural change is by helping Catholics to take their Baptismal responsibilities seriously. Consider using another VOTF implementation tool, Profile of the 21st Century Catholic in your Affiliate.
