A Bird Can't Fly with One Wing: Women and the Church in Nigeria 

In Nigeria’s Catholic Church, it is the women who are the backbone, the keepers of the faith. And yet their voices are markedly absent in the local Church...their gifts far too often untapped. Drawing on the African cultural narrative, experiential reality, and the idea of synodality, Sr. Caroline Mbonu, HHCJ, uses the example of the woman of Nazareth in Luke 1:26-38—the protagonist, Mary—to discuss how bridging this critical gap will revitalize the Church. After all, as the old Nigerian-Yoruba adage goes, “A bird does not fly with one wing.”  (RSVP required; lunch provided)
