Andrew Moore discusses the Community of Christ Our Brother, a non-territorial parish that operated in Atlanta, Georgia, between 1967 and 1969. Inspired by reforms of the Second Vatican Council, members engaged in local social and racial justice efforts. Under the leadership of Father Conald Foust, the parish experimented with liturgical reform and ecumenical worship. Foust openly challenged archdiocesan authority and sought to de-emphasize the parish’s Catholic distinctiveness, repudiating the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae and distributing the Eucharist to non-Catholics. He was suspended from the priesthood in December 1968, and the parish was disbanded the following year.
