This is who we are
We are working together to create the space for dialogue, theological exploration and collaboration among Catholic women in the worldwide Church.
Meet some of our members and read their stories
"I’m a Massachusetts American, raging liberal, nasty woman. Born and raised Catholic, and I never stopped being one. Now a convinced Quaker. If it makes it any easier, you can call me a Quaklic or a Quakeholic."
"I encourage greater dialogue across difference in our Catholic church and a deeper practice of hospitality, inclusion and solidarity at all levels. I believe that all of us are called by God to be advocates for each other and lovers of justice. I think that curiosity, imagination and a sense of humour can take us a long way."
"I stumbled upon Catholic Women Speak about a year ago and have, in complete honesty, learned a little more each day since. I feel a bit like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus as I take in the wisdom and experience of the women in the group, and feel incredibly blessed to be a part of it."
"We need to persist whatever obstacles we encounter within the hierarchical, clerical and institutional church. Jesus challenged some of the institutional obstacles, and with prayer and discernment many of us are called to do the same."
