PRESS RELEASE 7 March 2018
We Are Church Ireland is being represented at the "Voices of Faith" conference in Rome on March 8th by Ursula Halligan at which Mary McAleese will be the keynote speaker.
The theme of the meeting is "Why Women Matter" and the international conference coincides with International Women's Day.
On March 8 We Are Church Ireland is urging all its members to contact their local Bishops demanding, as a matter of justice, that all ministries in the Catholic Church be finally opened to women.
"The continued exclusion of women from all ministries including the priesthood and from executive functions in the Catholic Church is an injustice that must be ended. How can our Church continue to proclaim global justice for the marginalised when it accepts an injustice within the Church that marginalises half of its own members" stated Brendan Butler.
Brendan Butler, We are Church spokesperson.
