Metro Organizations for People (MOP): Metro Organizations for People (MOP) was founded in 1979 with the mission of empowering people to strengthen and transform their communities through community organizing. The community organizing process begins locally with member churches, schools, youth and neighborhood associations. MOP trains volunteer community leaders to re-weave the web of relationships in community so that they can effectively work together across race, class and language barriers to rediscover a common good leading to a higher quality of life for our families, children and neighbors.

Intentional Eucharistic Communities: Intentional Eucharistic Communities (IECs) are those small faith communities, rooted in the Catholic tradition, which gather to celebrate Eucharist on a regular basis. Born in the enthusiasm flowing from Vatican II for a church of the people, some IECs were instituted in parishes, some were created as alternatives to the parish, some retain close ties with the institutional church, and some function independently. All are characterized by shared responsibility for the governance and life of the community. This site serves as a central point for these communities.

Network of Intentional Eucharistic Communities: Intentional Eucharistic Communities are stable faith communities, born in the enthusiasm flowing from Vatican II for a church of the people. Some were initiated in parishes, some were created as alternatives to the parish, some retain close ties with the institutional church, and some function independently, but all are characterized by shared responsibility for the governance and life of the community.

The Progressive Christian Witness: The Progressive Christian Witness is an Internet-based initiative to strengthen progressive Christian voices in public discussion across America, especially in communities where the dominant voice is that of the religious right. Progressive voices proclaim the redemptive heritage of the Christian faith in a manner that is biblically and theologically responsible, ethically committed, and informed by current knowledge.
