The Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, NM, was founded in 1987 by Franciscan Father Richard Rohr, who saw the need for a training/formation center that would serve as a place of discernment and growth for activists and those interested in social service ministries. This center would serve a dual purpose as not only a radical voice for peaceful, non-violent social change but also as a forum for renewal and encouragement for the seeking individual who sought direction from and understanding of God's will and love. Today, the CAC is that place of discovery and much more.
The CAC attracts people from around the world who seek peaceful, positive alternatives and solutions to the difficult challenges of our often materialistic, irrational and violent world. Our quarterly publication, Radical Grace, has a readership in every state and in 15 countries.
