I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
An independent organization of concerned, committed Catholics, based in Pittsburgh, formed to affirm the laity’s rightful role of co-responsibility in the Church.

CCOC’s Public Statement on the First Anniversary of the Release of the PA Grand Jury Report
CCOC’s Public Statement was released on August 14, 2019.
In the Public Statement, CCOC reviews what has happened in our Church in the past year, what is happening now, and what needs to happen in the future to sustain the Church in our diocese and across America.
We believe that Catholics, lay and ordained, must walk together toward the holiness to which we are called by our baptism, and create a new culture of co-responsible leadership and governance that is transparent, accountable, competent, and rooted in the gospel values of justice and mercy. These positive changes are the only way forward to restore trust and safeguard the essential mission of the Catholic Church.
