It has been announced that the Vicariate Co-ordinator for Faith and Mission, Amy Cameron has been appointed as the next President of the National Board of Catholic Women (NBCW).

Amy says of her appointment, which she will hold while continuing her role for the Diocese,

It is an honour to be elected president to the National Board of Catholic Women, I am very aware that I stand on the shoulders of the giants who have gone before me. There have been generations of strong Catholic women leading within this organisation since it began in 1938. My aim going forward is to ensure the NBCW is dynamic and agile for the changing needs of Catholic women, to ensure even the busiest of women can be supported and nurtured and find their voice according to their baptismal calling. This role comes at a time when the Church is striving to be more synodal, to accompany and to discern the way ahead. This is true for structures within the Church as well as for the individuals that comprise them. It is an apt time for the NBCW to be reviewing itself and to be looking outward for the areas of need for the women of today. It is a privilege to be able to lead and accompany this organisation as it finds its next steps into the future.

Congratulations to Amy and we wish her well in her term as President of the NBCW.
