The Power to Preach: A Conversation About Ordaining Women as Deacons [WEBINAR]

WEBINAR DATE AND TIME: Apr 29, 2021 06:00 PM in Eastern Time

On the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena, a lay member of the Order of Preachers, join a conversation with the founders of Discerning Deacons, a new initiative that is engaging Catholics in the discernment of our Church about the ordination of women to the diaconate. At this event, witness the historical and contemporary diaconal ministry of Catholic women; explore the potential impact of women deacons in your parish, community and beyond; and discern how to participate in Pope Francis’ vision for a “synodal church” that walks together.
