Being Catholic was the most salient characteristic forming the collective identity of VOTF participants. This chapter explores how the movement embraced and challenged a definition of “Catholic” and the ways in which Catholicism is lived out through the church. VOTF constructed a Catholic identity in the face of challenges from the institution that they targeted in their mobilization. Their identity labor exemplifies the way that collective identity and religion, as culture, are instrumental and highly contested in IISMs.

Keywords:   Voice of the Faithful, collective identity, Catholic identity, institution, culture, intrainstitutional social movement
