Patriarchy and Clericalism
A "Come to the Table" Conversation
Sunday, January 28, 2024, after the 10:30 a.m. Mass
Oldershaw Hall, St. Nicholas Campus
What exactly do we mean when we talk about patriarchy and clericalism? What is the impact of this system on the Catholic church and society at large?
Join Equality for Women in the Catholic Church (EWC) for a stimulating "Come to the Table" conversation that seeks to promote awareness, dialogue, and reflection on the role of patriarchy in shaping the church structure and overall Catholic experience.
This thought-provoking discussion will unravel the definition and impact of patriarchy within the context of the Catholic Church, shedding light on the dynamics that have shaped power structures and gender roles and contributed to the perpetuation of gender inequalities. Participants will gain insights into the ways in which patriarchal norms influence various aspects of religious or spiritual life, from leadership roles to theological perspectives.
The event begins at 11:30 a.m. on January 28 in Oldershaw Hall on the St. Nicholas Campus of St. John XXIII Parish. All are welcome to attend this celebration; invite your friends from other communities and help us spread the word! Contributions to our refreshment table are appreciated.
