About Center for Action and Contemplation
The Center for Action and Contemplation, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was founded in 1987 by Franciscan Father Richard Rohr, who saw the need for a training/formation center. It would serve as a place of discernment and growth for activists and those interested in social service ministriesa place to be still, and learn how to integrate a contemplative lifestyle with compassionate service. The Centers purpose would be to serve not only as a forum for peaceful, non-violent social change but also as a radical voice for renewal and encouragement.
Envisioned as a faith alternative to the dominant consciousness, offering hope, inspiration and challenge to a despairing world, the CAC today attracts people from around the world those who seek peaceful, positive alternatives and solutions to the difficult challenges of our often materialistic, irrational and violent world. These people share the CAC vision and understand the constructive message of the Gospel that crosses boundaries of religion, ethnicity, social class and gender.
Many individuals seeking direction from and understanding of God's will and love have found the CAC to be a place of discovery and much more.
