International Survey of Catholic Women (ISCW)

WEBINAR 7:00pm AEST, Wednesday 10 May 2023

The International Survey of Catholic Women (ISCW) was undertaken in 2022 in response to the call for submissions to the 2021–2024 Synod of Bishops themed For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission. 

The recently published ISCW: Analysis and Report of Key Findings is based on the survey findings drawn from 17,200 responses from women in 104 countries. This report is available at https://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/1468189.

This webinar will feature researchers Dr Tracy McEwan, Dr Kathleen McPhillips, and Professor Tina Beattie in dialogue with Jacqui Rémond. Together they will report on key findings and recommendations and explore how the ISCW captured the complex diversity, insights, and shared concerns of thousands of Catholic women from around the world to become the largest international survey of Catholic women ever undertaken. 

We hope you can join us.

Walking together towards a synodal conversión

A webinar with

Rafael Luciani

Saturday 20 May 2023, 9.30am (ACST). 10.00am (AEST)

Rafael is a Lay Venezuelan theologian, Expert of the Theological Commission of the General Secretariat for the Synod of Bishops, Expert of CELAM (Latin American Bishops’ Council) and Member of the Theological Advisory Team of the Presidency of CLAR (Latin American Confederation of Religious men and women).

Rafael will be speaking from Venezuela, his home country

SYNODALITY means inclusive leadership, listening to the sense of faith of the faithful and a rejection of autocratic and patriarchal decision-making. But we still do not if there will be any more than a handful of lay Catholics participating. The first session of the Synod will be in Rome in October 2023.

The seven Continental Federations of Bishops Conferences Bishops are now finalising their submissions to the Synod on Synodality which will be the basis for the Synod Working Document.

Dare we hope for a fair outcome for all Catholics?
