Junge katholische Stimmen
von Sophia Vogel
Samstag 30. Januar von 11:00-12:00 Uhr
PLEASE NOTE - This event will be spoken in German and translated to English and Italian.
Very often we hear how young Catholics are leaving the faith in droves. But what of those young women who stay? Why do they continue to be so involved, so passionate about a Church where the structures have shown time and time again how unjust the system can be, especially towards women.
Join Voices of Faith for our first event of the year where we will interview four young Catholic women from Germany whose tenacity and determination to fight for the dignity and equality of women in their Church will surely inspire the next generation to take up the challenge.
