We are Church Ireland  is nominating  Mary Mc Aleese  and Gina Menzies to be  Irish representatives on the forthcoming Synod on the Family announced by Pope Francis to take place in October 2014.

This decision to nominate representatives from individual countries was taken at a recent International meeting of the 'International Movement of We are Church’  (IMWAC ) and the final list  will be presented to the Synod when complete.

‘This proactive decision was taken  to ensure that the views of  Irish lay Catholics especially women will be heard at the forthcoming Synod of the family’ stated
