We invite Catholics to gather virtually to pray for the intercession of St. Phoebe, listen to powerful testimonies from Catholic women engaged in diaconal ministry, and express our collective hope that the Church would “receive them in the Lord,” just as St. Paul asked the Church in Rome to receive Phoebe the diakonos in Romans 16:1-2.

The liturgy will take place in both English and Spanish.

Embrace | Witness | Hope

We embrace the ministry of deacons.
We witness the diaconal ministry of women.
We hope in the Holy Spirit for healing and renewal.

Invitamos a los católicos a reunirse virtualmente para rezar por la intercesión de Santa Febe, para escuchar poderosos testimonios de mujeres católicas comprometidas con el ministerio diaconal, y para expresar nuestra esperanza colectiva de que la Iglesia “las reciba en el Señor”, tal como San Pablo le pidió a la Iglesia de Roma que recibiera a Febe, diakonos, en Romanos 16:1-2.

La liturgia será en inglés con interpretación en español.

Apoyamos | Somos testigos | Tenemos esperanza

Apoyamos el ministerio de los diáconos.

Women need to share their spiritual gifts with others as deacons, serving those who are currently unserved, reaching towards the fullness of the expression of our faith.

Many women I know are competent Catholic ministers, discern a call, and deserve to be empowered by our institution and fully recognized in our communities. It would dignify our Church to recognize this reality.

“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.”

Campus minister and teacher, San Francisco, California
