Voices of Faith invite you to engage in an awareness campaign that empowers and advocates for women in leadership and decision making roles in the global Catholic Church. The campaign fits well with this year's International Women's day theme of #BalanceforBetter. You can view the promotional video here
This campaign will run until 31st December 2019, by which date Voices of Faith hope their website will have collected 1 million faces and messages to take to the Roman Curia and show the urgency and importance of gender equality in leadership. Please see the attached brochure for information on how you can participate.
For any questions please contact Stephanie Lorenzo, Voices of Faith ph: 0402 637 637 or visit: www.voicesoffaith.org.
WHY DO WE NEED THIS CAMPAIGN?
The Catholic Church is facing a crisis. A new generation of Catholics are questioning the Church hierarchy and its response to a changing world and emerging problems, such as sexual and power abuses.
Many questions are coming from deeply faithful Catholic women who are asking why the Church is so slow in recognising their value and opening decision making roles to them; roles that incorporate their faith,
charism, expertise and education into structures of authority at all levels.
With over 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide and over half of them women, we must ask why there are so few female decision-makers in the Catholic Church.
Decisions that affect all of us, cannot be voiced by half of us. Without female voices in leadership, half the Church remains silent.
