Webinars to Promote Abuse Prevention

Webinars Promote Abuse

At the beginning of the “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year, the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations (WUCWO/UMOFC) will promote webinars to disseminate methods to prevent the terrible consequences of abuse in the most vulnerable members of the family: children and adolescents.

During the webinars, we will be able to listen to the words of the Under-Secretary of the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, Dr. Linda Ghisoni, who wrote the preface to a publication that will be presented during the meeting. The two authors of the publication, Prof. María Inés Franck of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina and Prof. Katharina Anna Fuchs of the Pontifical Gregorian University, both experts in the field, will also share their views. The experiences of men and women involved in this work of prevention will also be presented.

It will be an occasion of preparation for the Easter Triduum, to unite ourselves to Mary, who accompanied Jesus in his suffering and cared for the body of her Son. WUCWO as well wants to try to heal and avoid Jesus’ current wounds in his Mystical Body, such as child abuse.

The World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations (WUCWO) was founded in 1910 and now represents nearly 100 Catholic women’s organizations worldwide, active in around 50 countries including all continents and some island states, counting on around eight (8) million Catholic women of every walk of life. WUCWO’s aim is to promote the presence, participation, and co-responsibility of Catholic women in society and the Church, in order to enable them to fulfill their mission of evangelization and to work for human development, particularly in increasing educational opportunities, poverty reduction, and the advancement of human rights beginning with the fundamental right to life.
