Women in the life and mission of the Catholic Church in the world: on the Synodal path
Mar 9 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

CAFOD logoThis is a joint event between CAFOD and St.Mary’s University Twickenham.

You can go in-person or you can join online.

CAFOD describes this event as follows:-

At the Assembly of the Synod on Synodality in Rome in October 2023, the participants recognised that “in Christ, women and men are clothed with the same baptismal dignity (Gal 3:28) and receive equally the variety of gifts of the Spirit.” They said it was “urgent to ensure that women can participate in decision-making processes and assume roles of responsibility in pastoral care and ministry.”

Join us for a special hybrid event this Lent, hosted by St Mary’s Twickenham and CAFOD to examine how our Church can recognise and value the active contribution of women and enhance the pastoral leadership of women in all areas of the Catholic Church’s life and mission, all over the world.

Keynote speakers:

Sr Marie-Kolbe Zamora, OSF, is a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity serving in the General Secretariat of the Synod in Rome.

Sr Francisca Ngozi Uti, Director of the Centre for Women Studies and Intervention in Nigeria and a Sister in the Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, Nigeria
