Synod on Synodality (Page 4)

Posted on September 12, 2023

A delegation of ten Catholic Canadians, members of the Catholic Network for Women’s Equality (CNWE) will be travelling to Rome October 1-6, 2023 to call for the full and equal participation of women in ministry and leadership in the Catholic Church. We will join reform-minded Catholics from around the world as the Vatican Synod on Synodality Assembly begins.

Pope Francis has expressed a desire that half of the delegates proposed by bishops’ conferences be women. This is the first time that a Vatican Synod will be comprised of 21% non-bishop voting participants and the first time in the history of the Catholic Church that women and young people will have a vote at a Vatican Synod.

The Catholic Network for Women’s Equality (CNWE) in Canada welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Working Document for the Continental Stage of the Synod (DCS). Reflecting on the DCS, as well as diocesan reports from around the world, it is evident that the Spirit is calling the church to ‘enlarge the space of our tent’.
