​The commitment of Indonesian Catholic sisters

“We are aware of the cultural and religious pluralism existing in the country and with determination we want to live with the spirit of the value of compassion”, the Catholic Women’s Association of Indonesia wrote in the Final Document of its Jakarta Congress. Taking part were more than 600 delegates from the country’s 37 dioceses. Founded in 1924, the Association – which today has 90,000 members and was rewarded by the Indonesian Government with recognition as “the best social organization in 2018”– has implemented interreligious programmes for literacy and for women’s emancipation, as well as for their economic well-being.
