Fr. Bob Bonnot
June 1, 2021

“Pope Francis has established two timely commissions to explore the question of ordaining women to the diaconate. He requires careful discernment on all important questions facing the Church. Listening is central to his call for church-wide synodality. This Discerning Deacons initiative is an effective and timely way to engage the baptized and enable them to learn, discern, and raise their voice regarding the ordination of women deacons.”

Fr. Bob Bonnot is the executive director of the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests.

“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?”
