GALLERY: International Women’s Day celebrated locally

The celebration of International Women’s Day has become an annual event in the diocese, with Bishop Bill presiding at Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral and inviting all to morning tea and an opportunity to hear a variety of women’s voices.

Convenor of the local contact group of the Council for Australian Catholic Women (CACW), Patricia Banister, and CACW member, Helen Belcher, hosted a gathering of some forty women. There was informal sharing of stories during morning tea, and then five local women – Brooke Robinson, Bronwyn Melville, Robyn Donnelly, Majella Dennis and Tracey Edstein – shared aspects of their life stories.
