Christianity was introduced in Ghana by the first missionaries in 1482. Christian theology was limited to the liberation of the faithful from the oppression of sin, and preparing souls for salvation. This agenda left out the economic needs of the faithful, particularly women. Women play an important role in the Church, yet they are generally oppressed by poverty due to lack of skills for employment. The need for both mundane and spiritual support have now become an important part of Liberation Theology in the Catholic Church. The Christian Mothers' Association provides its members with skills training to ensure their economic liberation. This paper aimed at testing how the skills programme is liberating women from the oppression of poverty within the Diocese of Techiman.
