Today we are celebrating International Women's Day. International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for moving towards gender parity (International Women’s Day website).
All staff and students received a white lapel ribbon today - wear this with pride! The white ribbon represents our symbol for the year, the white lily/fleur de lis and celebrates our strength as women.
We look forward to celebrating IWD tonight at our special event. Bookings open, https://merici.news/event-created/international-womens-day-cocktail-party.
Loving God, we celebrate your
faithfulness and love. On this day
we commit ourselves to the promotion of
the full humanity of all women
everywhere. We know that whatever
denies, diminishes or distorts the full
humanity of women is not of God.
Help us to be faithful to your call to love.
