About The Progressive Catholic Review


PCR is an electronic publication of the St. Bonaventure Virtual House of Studies, an educational ministry to the Ecumenical Catholic Communion and beyond. Our mission is to promote and publish studies that explore and enrich our understanding of:

1) the Church Catholic expressed through the Local Church, as experienced in the First Millennium of Christianity, as recovered by the See of Utrecht in the early Eighteenth Century, as engaged by the secession of some German, Swiss and Austrian Roman Catholics following the First Vatican Council, as articulated by the theological discussions of the Second Vatican Council and those theologians who have continued in that ecclesiological trajectory, and as expressed by all Christian theologians who have contributed to our understanding of an ecumenical ecclesiology;

2) ecumenical ties with other Catholic communions, Eastern Christians, Lutherans, Anglicans, Protestants, and with all who are in Christ;

3) our relationship with all children of God, including those of different faiths and of no faith;

and

4) integrative theological systems that speak to the catholicity of the human experience and the ecumenical possibilities between peoples who presently conceptualize themselves as differentiated.

We understand all of the above to be subject to the criterion of the Gospel.

PCR, will contain a potpourri of scholarly articles, reflections, meditations, individual book/film reviews, and review essays relevant to the mission of St. Bonaventure Virtual House of Studies and supportive of the ministry of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion.

The initial issue of The Progressive Catholic Review appeared during the week of Easter II 2010. We are now accepting submissions to be considered for future issues. ECR will contain a potpourri of scholarly articles, reflections, meditations, individual book/film reviews, and review essays relevant to the mission of St. Bonaventure Virtual House of Studies and supportive of the ministry of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion. If you are interested in being a contributor, please go to A Note to Prospective Authors.


If Popular demand of a sufficient sufficient size develops, we may eventually go to a print format. We can dream.
