    Abstract

    This project was undertaken to record the voices of those who remember the heyday of Catholic Action in Australia. It comprises an archive of interviews with eleven people who describe the sources of their ideas and their organisations, including their activities, formation and education, and the legacies of that period for the Church and the society. These eleven people describe the excitement and energy that propelled them or their parents into action and the ideas, people and movements that nourished them or their parents during this heady period. They focus on key Catholic Action and associated movements of these years, in particular, the Campion Society, the Australian National Secretariat for Catholic Action, the National Catholic Rural Movement, the Young Christian Workers, the Catholic Worker, Cripac Press, the Newman Society and the Adult Christian Workers Movement.
