We are celebrating the launch of the second Catholic Women Speak book, Visions and Vocations, with an evening that will seek to open a space for a theologically informed conversation about women in leadership in ecclesial communities and organisations. We are bringing together a diverse range of voices (including from our audience) to ask: how can we support the presence and formation of women for leadership roles in the Church?
