Website Review: Center for Action and Contemplation

A review based on:


The Center for Action and Contemplation, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was founded in 1987 by Franciscan Father Richard Rohr. Its goal is to "serve as a place of discernment and growth for activists and those interested in social service ministries."

Unfortunately, Fr. Rohr and the Center's view of discernment and growth includes embracing radical feminism, the enneagram, and the entire Call to Action agenda. For more information, see The Center For Action and Contemplation by Stephanie Block.
