In 1995, Pope John Paul II said, “woman has a genius all her own, which is vitally essential to both society and the Church.” The Church understands that a woman, created in the image of God, bears within herself unique gifts that make a tremendous contribution to the world. The more a woman draws near to Jesus Christ and cultivates a rich spiritual life in the Church, her gifts are illumined and her capacities flourish. This not only affords a woman deep personal fulfillment, but also gives her the capacity to bring about the transformation of lives, culture and society.
The Church wishes to support women in the journey of discovering their dignity and in living out their vocation. On the submenu to the left, you can find some great faith formation programs and events that you might consider.
