Better Church Governance

our missioN

(1) Investigate abuse and corruption in the leadership of the Catholic Church,

(2) Communicate evidence in order to hold complicit leaders accountable and identify credible allegations,

(3) Support honesty, clarity, and fidelity in Church governance, and

(4) Restore trust between the laity and the clergy.  

Our flagship project is The Red Hat Report: An Audit of the Cardinals.



we aim to follow the example of two saints: SIR thomas more & Catherine of siena.


Saint Thomas More, the patron saint of statesmen, chastised the bishops of his day — or as he called them, “the sleeping Apostles”—for their role in creating a schismatic Church under King Henry VIII. And Saint Catherine of Siena, one of the patron saints of Europe, vigorously petitioned Pope Gregory XI to reform the clergy and bring an end to the papacy in Avignon. Like both of these saints, we strive for unity of the Church, not division; constructive reform, not destructive intervention. Please join us in prayer and in imploring the intercession of these two patrons for our ongoing work.
