About Voice of the Faithful NY
Voice of the Faithful is a community of Catholic laity with members
and affiliates across the nation and around the world. VOTF’s
mission is to provide a prayerful voice attentive to the Spirit
through which the Faithful can actively participate in the governance
and guidance of the Church.
VOTF foundational goals are to support the survivors of clerical
sexual abuse, to support priests of integrity, and to work for
structural change within the Church to produce increased transparency,
accountability, and lay involvement in decision-making.
VOTF NY supports these goals. Our current emphasis is especially
focused on efforts to increase transparency and accountability
among hierarchy, clergy, and laity. We aim to accomplish this
by increasing laity awareness of our responsibility to ensure
a healthy Church, engage clergy in dialogue, address important
issues facing the Church, and be a constant voice for lay concerns.
Our affiliates meet in various locations in the city and suburbs,
and for those at a distance interactive involvement is available
online or through the mail. For further information, contact us
