WE ARE ALL CHURCH (WAACSA) is a movement of Catholics in South Africa who are committed to the renewal of the Church initiated by the Second Vatican Council.

“The council now beginning rises in the Church like the daybreak, a forerunner of most splendid light”

“Those who exercise authority in the Church will take care to ensure that there is responsible exchange of freely held and expressed opinion among the People of God”

“The Christian faithful have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful”
