Spirituality of Women for the Future of the Church

November 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join us for a reflection on Women and the Church sixty years on from Vatican II.

In an impromptu press conference on the return flight from the World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis said “… all we say is they can do this, they can do that, now they are altar servers, now they do the readings, ..but there is more! We need to develop a profound theology of the woman.”

Where is the Church in relation to women nearly sixty years after Vatican II?

Where are women in relation to the Church?

We will reflect on these questions based on church documents and present understanding and practice in light of the gifts of mind and heart that women can and do bring to Church ministry. Along with the presentation, you will be invited to some time for personal reflection and an opportunity to share your wisdom with one another.

This program includes lunch.
