About Ecclesia of Women in Asia

 Group picture of the participants during the 5th EWA Conference held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, November 5 to 9, 2011.

 

Our name "Ecclesia of Women in Asia" expresses the desire of women to enter the mainstream Church as fully responsible ecclesial participants and partners in the life of the Church. EWA seeks to raise the consciousness that women are Church and always have been Church. The logo is a picture of the globe with women encircling it, symbolizing the spirit of women building inclusive communities.

Mission Statement
Ecclesia of Women in Asia is committed to the formation of inclusive and just ecclesial communities and societies by theologizing from Asian women's perspectives and recognizing Asian Catholic women as equal partners in the life of the Church.

The Ecclesia of Women in Asia aims to:
Gather the voices of Asian Catholic women theologians and make these heard;
Give visibility to the contribution of Asian women in shaping and transforming the Church and world;
Express the desire of women to be respected as fully responsible ecclesial partners and leaders in the life of the Church;
Recognize and actualize woman as image of God; and
Endeavor to build communities that are inclusive, equitable, sustainable and just at local, regional and global levels,

Objectives
EWA encourages and assists Catholic women in Asia to engage in research, reflection and writing towards doing theology that:
a. Is inculturated and contextualized in Asian realities;
b. Builds on the spiritual experience and praxis of the socially excluded;
c. Promotes mutuality and the integrity of creation;
d. Dialogues with other disciplines, Christian denominations and faiths.

Programs and Activities
In furtherance of its Mission and Visiion, EWA:
- organizes conferences that encourage the writing of original and creative theological papers for publication;
- fosters communication and discussion among Catholic women theologians through a cyberspace group and a website;
- dialogues with feminist, grassroots, or theological movements and women from other faiths;
- conducts such other programs and activities as may help in the attainment of our vision.
