CNA launches 'Catholic Womanhood' site for reflections on faith and living

.- Catholic News Agency is officially launching a new resource, focusing on the experiences and spiritual lives of Catholic women. “Catholic Womanhood” is a place for women of faith to consider and discuss issues of today's culture and society, everyday life and work, and the pursuit of holiness within the universal Church.

Nearly 30 columnists, commentators and bloggers are slated to contribute their thoughts and reflections to the site. Topics to be covered, from a faithful Catholic perspective, include motherhood and child care, mature womanhood, adolescence, personal and spiritual growth, family and friendships, methods of renewing Catholic culture in the modern world, advice on finding time to pray and living the Church's liturgical year, as well as tips on traveling, fashion and maintaining good health.

Catholic Womanhood is the successor to the website operated by Phases of Womanhood, a nonprofit organization of Catholic laywomen. Many of the columns and commentaries which readers enjoyed at the Phases of Womanhood site can still be found through the new site at www.catholicnewsagency.com/cw.

Catholic Womanhood can also be accessed through banners on CNA's main page or in the section below the Asia – Pacific news items.

CNA will be posting new contributions to Catholic Womanhood on a daily basis, alongside its daily coverage of all news pertaining to the Church around the world. Catholic Womanhood will also feature writings by, and about, some of the Church's greatest and wisest women saints and spiritual writers, such as St. Theresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, and Julian of Norwich.

Marie Buonforte, president of the Phases of Womanhood organization, was excited about the group's new venture with CNA:

"Phases of Womanhood is thrilled to partner with CNA to help bring the new Catholic Womanhood pages to Catholic women around the world.  The new Catholic Womanhood pages are an excellent opportunity for CNA readers to discover top-notch writers who love the faith and share terrific practical insights on Catholic life! I hope women will stop by and visit every day!

“This partnership with CNA helps us to continue our mission of sharing a Catholic view of life with women, offering them encouragement and practical resources from a solidly Catholic perspective."

The site launches today with an exclusive Scott Hahn interview.
