Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.
June 9, 2021

“A serious discernment about women and the diaconate is fully appropriate, fully orthodox and an important process for the Church to undertake. It is grounded in the Church’s practice for several centuries and would help bring renewal for the Church in the world today. I’m glad to endorse Discerning Deacons and encourage those seeking meaningful ways to pray and act together on this important question for our time.”

Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., is the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation and the author of several books on the deep wisdom of Christian mysticism and the traditions of action and contemplation.

“The flock, especially women in need of ministry, would be more effectively shepherded if women were clearly and visibly available as deacons.”
