“It is time for the Church to heed the Spirit’s voice, recognizing women’s call to the diaconate and allow the Spirit to restore and renew the Body of Christ so that it may fully live into its identity of missionary discipleship.”

Joan D. Martin, Ph.D.

“I feel that the Catholic Church as it is structured is not what Jesus envisioned for his followers—so many of them were women of his day. What happened?”

Keith Davis

“It is time to open up the permanent diaconate to all who are qualified regardless of gender. The Church needs this witness.”
