Women and men in a synodal community

Edition 2022


Opening paths for serious and serene dialogue on the role of women within the Church is the goal of this important project.




The initiative shared with other important Pontifical Universities and Catholic Institutes explores the specific contribution of women in the life and mission of the Church. It aims to activate processes of mutual collaboration between women and men in ecclesial spaces, taking on account the question of the lay faithful raised above all by the Second Vatican Council.  What is the role of women in this context? The reflection takes place on the horizon of a Church on the path of conversion and in the light of synodality. The Church needs the contribution of women, both in the decision-making sphere and to fully relive her own vocation through her feminine and maternal face.
