Deacon Dennis T. Duffell
August 19, 2021

Deacon Dennis T. Duffell is Regional Coordinator of Pax Christi Northwest in Seattle, Washington.

“I dream of a Church that receives and empowers the gifts that the Holy Spirit has given to each member. Ordaining women to the diaconate is one important way to recognize and strengthen the diaconal ministry that is already exercised by Catholic women everywhere.”

“To encounter a woman deacon would offer the world a different prism through which to meet and marvel at the truth of Jesus. The beauty of Catholicism deserves to reflect his bold collaboration with women.”
Fr. Michael Hickin
Pastor of three parishes in Cavalier County, North Dakota
