“Without women there is no Catholic church, hospital, school, university, social service, prison ministry, etc. The role of deacon would pour out the Spirit on the Church and the world through the women in whom He/She resides.

[Having women deacons in my parish] would be a visible sign of God’s love for all humanity and would recognize women as leaders in the parish—beyond the leadership women demonstrate often without title. I converted to Catholicism due in large part to the leadership of a woman who served as parish leader through the position of Parish Life Director (PLD) in the Archdiocese of Seattle.

My daughters cannot understand why I attend a church that has limits on the role of women. Women can be judges, university presidents, corporate executives, astronauts, but not ordained as servants of God, the Church and humanity.

I attended Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry years ago. There were many gifted Catholic women there; seeking theological training and spiritual formation. Some, in search of a place to utilize their gifts, left the Catholic Church in order to obtain ordained leadership positions in other denominations and faith traditions.”

“Our St. Phoebe Day celebration was a Catholic mass at its best—coming together, unified at the Eucharistic table, getting nourished through meaningful ritual, prayerful and relevant songs, a challenging message on synodality from scripture, and engaging and honest testimonies from two women in our community. St. Joan of Arc parish today did what Jesus did years ago—fed souls and gave people hope.”

“Together, we are grateful that the ministry and example of St. Phoebe enlivens our community to participate in exploring the unique gifts of women in our faith community. Here at Cranaleith, we feel strongly about creating space for all those seeking wholeness and transformation for themselves, their communities and society. This retreat was an opportunity for us to do just that.”

“The icon of St. Phoebe is still present in our Chapel today, where we are able to remember her witness and ask her to intercede on our behalf.”
