“I dream of a world where girls and women sitting in pews around the world can feel empowered to follow the Holy Spirit’s call wherever it takes them, including the diaconate. It’s past time for the Church to publicly recognize women’s gifts and empower them to be used for the common good. The Church would reach so many more girls and women who don’t feel comfortable opening up to or even being alone with men because of past trauma. Imagine the healing and love the Church could bring to a broken world with thousands more deacons serving across the globe!”

Anne Feczko is a nurse practitioner in Cincinnati, Ohio.

“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.”

“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?”
