President's Message



Welcome to our National Board of Catholic Women website. My first engagement as President of the Board was to attend the Proclaim 15 event which took place in July 2015. The message from the day re-iterated Pope Francis’ exhortation – The Joy of the Gospel – that every baptised person is responsible for spreading the word of God and making the world a better place.

The many groups that make up the Board are already engaged in enabling women to use their gifts and talents in the service of the Church. Much work has already been done to help those in need, but there are still opportunities for Catholic women who are concerned about peace and justice. At the United Nations in New York last September, Pope Francis urged everyone to find a way to overcome the inequalities in our societies.

You could say that the NBCW is a “liquorice allsorts” kind of organisation so there is bound to be at least one group that suits your interests. If you are looking for a way to make a difference and bring about the “Common Good”, see what we have to offer and join us.
