Nel Catholic Women’s Council (CWC), gruppi e reti di donne cattoliche che rappresentano i cinque continenti, vari paesi, gruppi linguistici e culturali si uniscono in pellegrinaggio. Attraverso le iniziative virtuali e locali, questi gruppi esprimeranno la loro creatività e riscopriranno il significato della dignità e dell’uguaglianza che devono essere la base della vita della Chiesa.

Nei mesi che precedono il marzo 2022, le iniziative dei gruppi membri di CWC saranno condivise in questa pagina con l’obiettivo di esplorare la comprensione della dignità e dell’uguaglianza dei diritti nella Chiesa. La forma di ogni pellegrinaggio può essere diversa. Vi sfidiamo ad essere creative! Come pellegrinaggio potete organizzare incontri, conferenze, preghiere, concerti, dibattiti, balli, gite in bicicletta, potete proporre espressioni artistiche e altro ancora. Ci auguriamo che queste iniziative dei nostri gruppi membri ispirino, scoprano ed esprimano la speranza, i punti in comune e le lotte che le cattoliche affrontano in tutto il mondo.


Questi pellegrinaggi virtuali e fisici porteranno i nostri gruppi uniti a comprendere meglio le prospettive, la forze e le lotte delle donne cattoliche di tutto il mondo. Speriamo che attraverso la comprensione e la condivisione con le nostre sorelle di tutto il mondo, le diverse voci possano riunirsi in una visione armoniosa di speranza per la Chiesa.


Tutti gli eventi e le iniziative sono organizzati da gruppi membri di CWC. Scoprite qui sotto dove si svolge l’evento locale di CWC nelle vostre vicinanze o partecipate a un’iniziativa virtuale online.

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.
