The Commission for Women of the Diocese of Worcester is an advisory group for the Bishop of Worcester, focusing on issues affecting women in the church and in society. The Commission has conducted a number of educational programs for Catholic women, and has directed studies on women’s issues in the Church and social justice issues.
The Commission’s main event is the “Gather Us In” Conference, which is held every other year at the DCU Center in Worcester. The highly successful bi-annual conference is designed to bring women of the Catholic faith together for a day of reflection, learning, discussion, and enlightenment, all in the service of enriching our spiritual lives. This has always been a very popular event, attracting approximately 800 women to each conference.
The Commission for Women sponsors other activities such as Secretaries Day (a day of appreciation for our diocesan parish secretaries) and the Unity Breakfast, held in the ‘off years’ between conferences. You can find out more about other other activities here.
