International Women's Day 2024

"We will open our hearts to the cries of the poor using our energies, gifts and resources to address violence and discrimination especially for women and children..." (Chapter Statement)

The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2024 is Inspire Inclusion. This theme is inline with our Chapter Statement (above).

When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world.

And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Collectively, let's forge a more inclusive world for women.

The Season of Lent has commenced

"We will share with others, including people of different faiths and no religious faith, the joys and struggles of this spiritual journey." (Chapter Statement)

In his message for Lent 2024 (14 February - 28 March), Pope Francis, referencing the world's inequalities and conflicts, encourages us to undertake an interior examination by asking:
Do we hear that cry? Does it trouble us? Does it move us?”  

He adds “In the presence of God, we become brothers and sisters, more sensitive to one another: in place of threats and enemies, we discover companions and fellow travelers,”

Pope Francis closes his message with an invitation that challenges: “I invite every Christian community to do just this: to offer its members moments set aside to rethink their lifestyles, times to examine their presence in society, and the contribution they make to its betterment.”
