Catholic Church Organizations and Reform Groups
On September 25, 2013 press conferences were held worldwide to announce the joint effort of 100 Church Organizations who had come together to address Pope Francis and his advisors on needed reforms in our Church and to urge them to acknowledge the rights and responsibilities of baptized Catholics to have a say in matters of concern for the good of the Church.
Since then our supporters have told us about many more groups and organizations. We invite you to visit their websites to see what they do and how you might support them.
Catholic Network for Women's Equality (CNWE), Canada
Catholic Network for Women's Equality (CNWE) is a Canadian, feminist-focused, support and advocacy group for women and men in the Roman Catholic tradition. As a Canadian organization, we connect, support and represent people who seek full dignity, justice and opportunity for women within the Catholic church and throughout the world. For over thirty years members of CNWE have shared a faithful commitment to social justice for all women. We celebrate the fact that we are part of a long history of women’s contributions to the Christian faith. Our movement embraces a broad range of Catholic women and men across Canada for whom an inclusive church that is accountable to all of its members is important. Our work for women’s equality in church and world is internationally respected and part of a network of pro-change Catholic movements around the globe.
