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.

“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.”
