Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn Women’s Taskforce

The Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn Women’s Taskforce (ACGWT) is a group of women from the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn who will work together to support and promote women in the local Catholic Church. Our website is regularly updated with our activities.

The ACGWT was formed after consultations in 2019 with the women of the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn from meetings in Canberra, Goulburn, Young, Nimmitabel, Batemans Bay and Bega

The women discerned the purpose to be:

  1. Formation

Sharing of the Catholic faith and culture
Disseminating information and resources for adult education in the faith, theology, scripture and spirituality

  1. Connection

Connecting and communicating with all women and energising them for the journey
Forming relationships with other Archdiocesan support and prayer groups

  1. Advocacy

Being an inclusive voice for women across the archdiocese
Advocating for their varied interests
Being a voice for change for women in the church.
