(Ottawa – CCCB) The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has just published With Respect to Women: a History of CCCB Initiatives Concerning Women in the Church and Society.

The document looks back at how the bishops of Canada over the past twenty-five years have engaged in various initiatives aimed at raising awareness, fostering mutual understanding, and promoting action on issues of concern to women in the church and society. Included are the full texts of interventions at various synods in Rome, pastoral statements and other declarations.

The publication of With Respect to Women is a record of what has been accomplished and is an expression of continuing commitment to the process of dialogue.

The CCCB has released the document in response to the call by Pope John Paul II in Tertio Millennio Adveniente his Apostolic Letter on the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000, to reflect “on the challenges of our time, such as the difficulties of dialogue between different cultures and the problems connected with women’s rights and the promotion of family and marriage.”

The 88-page book is available from CCCB Publications Service at a cost of $13.95. It may be ordered by calling toll-free 1-800-769-1147 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
