Retired Pastoral Associate, Detroit, MI

“I started out in aeronautical engineering. In graduate school, I had an experience that made my faith come alive. About a year later, I experienced a call to priesthood. I was receiving direction from an Episcopal priest, and belonged to the most radical church of any denomination in Detroit. The church supported me all through my journey. I believe God called me from my ministry as an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church so that my life would be a presence of an ordained woman in the Catholic Church. This is the heart of what I am in all I do. God is again calling the Church to be ministered to, and minister with ordained women. [If women were deacons,] [w]omen would then be able to preach at Mass, the only place most Catholics gather. There is a reality to ordination which is irrevocable and affects all we are, all we say, all we do, all who encounter us, all who are blessed, fed, healed, housed, taught by us.”

“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.”
