Aaron Sinner
Parishioner and Father, St. Thomas More Catholic Community, St. Paul, MN

The Synod on Synodality’s synthesis document declares: “It is urgent to ensure that women can participate in decision-making processes and assume roles of responsibility in pastoral care and ministry.”

As the father of two young daughters, I feel this same sense of urgency. I hope my two little girls can grow up in a church where they know their full dignity and gifts are honored, because they see the Church uplifting voices and perspectives like theirs. And not just for them, but for me–my faith, too, is nourished when our Church elevates voices that reflect the richness of our full human tapestry.

Below, watch Aaron’s video testimonial about his commitment to uplifting women in the Church, shared as a part of St. Thomas More Catholic Community’s St. Phoebe Day celebrations in 2023.

“Learning about the history of women in the diaconate gave context to efforts to enable women’s participation in the diaconate today, and it was powerful to celebrate St. Phoebe and uplift the ministry of women in our own community.”
