Editorial: Celebrating the gifts women bring to our schools, praises and other ministries.

Michael McVeigh  |  24 May 2017

In this edition, we celebrate some of the extraordinary women that inspire and shape our faith. Of course, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is one of the most influential, but there are many other women who have shaped our faith over the centuries and continue to do so today, holding leadership roles in our Church and society. Women bring great gifts to our schools, parishes and other ministries. Their contributions are worth celebrating.

‘We need to find a model of leadership that offers a graced alternative that espouses love, justice and inclusiveness for all. We need Mary.’ - An Immaculate Conception of Leadership
