Gregory Michael Barras
November 16, 2021

“Women are created in the image and likeness of God. They are an essential balance to leading and discerning the future/present Church, the people of God. Their wisdom, experience, emotional constitution are critical to leading a parish, diocese, any ministry.”

Fr. Gregory Michael Barras is a retired priest in the Diocese of Biloxi, Mississippi.

Endorser
La ordenación de mujeres para el diaconado no es solo una necesidad urgente de la Iglesia para responder a la gran escasez de vocaciones a la vida consagrada, sino también, y más importantemente, una cuestión de Justica y una verdadera edificación del Reino de Dios, donde reconozcamos and afirmemos, como el Cuerpo de Cristo, la IGUALDAD, la dignidad y los dones que mujeres y hombres hemos recibido de nuestro Creador.
Fr. Gonzalo Torres-Acosta, OFM

Women need to share their spiritual gifts with others as deacons, serving those who are currently unserved, reaching towards the fullness of the expression of our faith.

Many women I know are competent Catholic ministers, discern a call, and deserve to be empowered by our institution and fully recognized in our communities. It would dignify our Church to recognize this reality.
