Br Peter Carroll FMS, Provincial of the Marist Brothers Province of Australia

Communion is the heart of our faith and Church. In Galatians 3:28, we read: “In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female”. This ideal of unity needs to be realised in our own time. We must shatter the ‘myth of separation’ and vigorously and seriously embrace communion. Women’s voices need to be heard, not just in the corridors of power, but also in the aisles of Churches and the Chanceries of Dioceses. Their voices and perspectives are imperative. The people of God need them. The people of the world need them.
