On October 20, 2005 Catholic News reported, "The Commission for Australian Catholic Women (CACW) and the Australian Catholic University (ACU) have launched their new partnership in promoting interfaith relations with the prayer that 'the peace that we long for will take root in our hearts'. The CACW and ACU officially launched the Young Catholic Women's Interfaith Fellowship on Tuesday. The project is aimed at identifying and training young women to take a leadership role in promoting interfaith relations... CACW Chair, Geraldine Hawkes, said the Commission took its initiative from Pope John Paul II's exhortation that: 'The peace we long for will take root in our lives when the understanding of dialogue shifts from an exchange of ideas to an exchange of gifts'. 'This initiative towards more meaningful participation of young women in the life of the Church is a response to the voices around us,' Mrs Hawkes said."
