Catholic Women's Night

In early February, around 100 women from throughout the diocese gathered for the Catholic Women's Night. The evening was filled with laughter and sisterhood and featured a quiz, games and courageous sharing of touching and inspiring personal stories of faith. These testimonies were offered by everyday women in our various parishes. Bishop Michael gave an inspiring address, in which he shared the impact made by women in his life, emphasised the need for community in our current times and expressed his deep admiration and love for Mary, our Blessed Mother.

The fact that this night was organised by women from many different parishes throughout the diocese made it all the more special. It celebrated the unity of Catholic women across the generations and provided an opportunity for many to see familiar faces and forge new friendships. The event's success has inspired the organisers to plan another gathering later in the year. Future Catholic women's events will be advertised in the Diocesan Dispatch and posted on our facebook page.
