Im Catholic Women’s Council (CWC) schließen sich katholische Frauengruppen und -netzwerke aus fünf Kontinenten, verschiedenen Ländern, Sprach- und Kulturgruppen zu einer Pilgerreise zusammen. Durch virtuelle und lokale Initiativen werden diese Gruppen ihrer Kreativität Ausdruck verleihen und die Würde und Gleichheit wiederentdecken, die im Leben der Kirche zum Ausdruck kommen müssen. 

In den Monaten bis März 2022 werden im Folgenden Initiativen von CWC-Mitgliedsgruppen vorgestellt, die das Ziel haben, das Verständnis von gleicher Würde und gleichen Rechten in der Kirche zu erforschen. Jede Pilgerreise kann viele verschiedene Formen annehmen. Wir fordern Sie auf, kreativ zu sein! Es wird Begegnungen, Vorträge, gemeinsame Gebete, Gespräche, künstlerische Ausdrucksformen, Konzerte, Debatten, Tanz, Fahrradtouren und vieles mehr geben. Wir hoffen, dass diese Initiativen unserer Mitgliedsgruppen die Hoffnung, die Gemeinsamkeiten und die Probleme, mit denen sich viele Katholiken in der ganzen Welt auseinandersetzen, inspirieren, aufdecken und zum Ausdruck bringen werden.


Diese virtuellen und physischen Pilgerreisen werden unsere vereinigten Netzwerkpartnerinnen dazu führen, die Perspektiven, Stärken und Kämpfe der katholischen Frauen auf der ganzen Welt besser zu verstehen. Wir hoffen, dass durch das gemeinsame Verständnis mit unseren globalen Schwestern verschiedene Stimmen in einer harmonischen Vision der Hoffnung für die Kirche zusammenkommen können.


Alle Veranstaltungen und Initiativen werden von den Mitgliedsgruppen des CWC organisiert. Finden Sie unten heraus, wo Ihre lokale CWC-Veranstaltung stattfindet, oder schließen Sie sich einer virtuellen Online-Initiative an.

Online Event: Australia’s Plenary Council

Peter Wilkinson and David Timbs are members of a small, Melbourne based, Australian Catholic reform advocacy group Catholics for Renewal. It was founded in 2011 by a few practicing Catholic women and men, committed to the vision and promise of Vatican II. Their first public engagement was in response to the revelations of the enormous scope of the clerical child sexual abuse catastrophe in Australia. The group prepared submissions to the 2013 Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into the “Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Organisations” and to the 2013-2017 “Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse”. The submissions by Catholics for Renewal were responsible for effecting significant changes in State laws and Church safeguarding protocols. Since its announcement of an Australian Plenary Council in 2016 Catholics for Renewal has devoted their collective energies into setting out what they are convinced are the essential systemic reform and renewal measures that will assist in getting the Catholic Church in Australia back on mission. This has now been published in book form. Please click on MORE INFO to book your FREE ticket on Eventbrite. You will then be sent an email before the event with a ZOOM link

Women Disturb

“Women disturb. This means much more than being troublesome with petitions on the concerns of women's dignity and equality in the Roman Catholic Church. Women productively disturb the system of an institution that is deeply clerical and masculine. They disturb by their presence, by a different look, by questions and approaches that differ and complement one-sided perspectives.” We are honored and excited to invite you to zoom presentation of the new book by Sister Dr. Katharina Ganz. In a fresh and uncompromised way she is analyzing this fruitful presence of women in the Church that pushes this institution to come closer to the Gospel message. With honesty she is describing what is frustrating for Catholic women and what needs to be changed so the dignity of all is respected. This event will be spoken in GERMAN and simultaneously translated to ENGLISH and ITALIAN.

Drücken Sie Ihre Ideen auf Ihre eigene kreative Art und Weise aus – es könnte eine inspirierende Botschaft oder eine Vision von der Zukunft unserer Kirche sein, ein Kunstwerk, ein Gedicht oder ein Lied. Teilen Sie ein Symbol, ein Zeichen oder eine Geschichte mit. Wir sind gespannt, was Sie unserem Mosaik hinzufügen möchten!
