The Women The Vatican Could Not Silence. Dr Mary McAleese and Sister Joan Chittister in conversation
Voices of Faith, We are Church Ireland and the School of Religion in Trinity College presented two leading Catholic women in a public conversation to overcome the silence on issues that affect Catholics today and must be openly discussed for the future of an inclusive, egalitarian and harmonious Church.
Former Irish President Mary McAleese and feminist nun Sister Joan Chittister have both experienced attempts by the Catholic hierarchy to silence their voices. In this conversation, for the first time ever, these two courageous women come together to discuss their views on the many issues besetting our Church today and the possible solutions for change. (Please note there was a slight technical difficulty with Mary’s microphone, however this is fixed at the 27min mark)
