On the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena, a lay member of the Order of Preachers, the leadership team of Discerning Deacons led a conversation about the historical and contemporary diaconal ministry of Catholic women; the potential impact of women deacons in your parish, community and beyond; and how to participate in Pope Francis’ vision for a “synodal church” that walks together.
