It is important to live this discernment together as a people.
We welcome you to connect: to meet others who are feeling inspired to learn more, to pray together, and to make commitments of mutual responsibility and accountability.
New to Discerning Deacons, or curious about how you can get involved in the movement to grow the conversation about rethinking women’s roles in a synodal Church, including possibly as deacons?
Drop in for a welcome call to learn about Discerning Deacons, to connect with others across the country and world, and to get up to speed on the most current opportunities to step into your protagonism in the Church.
Welcome calls are generally offered on the second Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. ET and last about 45-60 minutes. Register for an upcoming meeting on Zoom.
We know that is just the beginning. We trust that together we can continue to serve the Church and share the hope.
Email our Director of Distributed Organizing, Anna Robertson, with questions.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Papa Francisco, Let us Dream
Joining a Welcome Call on Zoom is like walking into a church and being greeted by a friendly face who wants to help you find your seat and introduce you to a few others. Come with your camera on, ready to learn about the project and to explore ways to participate and invite others into this discernment during the Global Synod.
No worries! Drop us a line, and we’ll connect with you at another time.
To commit to hold sacred space, to listen, to encounter each other’s stories and hopes, and to bear witness. We personally engage in the discernment and also invite others into it. We slowly grow, build, and deepen a collective, which can be a source of renewal to become a people, walking together.
