WOMEN AND THE CHURCH – EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY?
WOMEN’S EQUALITY IS AN ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENT FOR OUR CHURCH – ACP
Tuesday, 01 October, 2019
The Association of Catholic Priests was set up as a voice for priests, and to promote the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.
Now, nine years later, the leadership of the ACP are convinced that the issue of women’s equality is an essential requirement for our Church to be a credible instrument in promoting the message of Jesus Christ.
Roy Donovan (ACP Leadership Team), will give the opening address, followed by Sharon Tighe-Mooney(Author of ‘What About Me? Women and the Catholic Church’).
The former President of Ireland, Mary McAleese (Author of ‘Quo Vadis? Collegiality in the Code of Canon Law’) will then take part in a public interview with Gerry O’Connor CSsR, to be followed by an open forum.
All are welcome
Aligned with Pope Francis’ example and encouragement, the ACP welcomes people of different perspectives on the issue of Women and the Church, to participate in the meeting, and to contribute and listen, enhancing discernment, while recognising differences.
