Catherine Murray, OP M.Div/LCSW
First Councilor Dominican Sisters of San Rafael
April 4, 2023

From my earliest days at the Graduate Theological Union I have been called and invited to preach and engage in the fullness and vitality of preaching ministry. As women we continue to open possibilities to share our gifts in this church we love. We draw upon the witness of women church leaders who followed Christ - from Mary Magdalene and the early deaconesses to the present day. Breaking open the Word of God through proclamation of the gospel is central to our Dominican vocation.

 

Sr. Catherine Murray's current ministry is leadership in her religious community, the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael, California. She is also a preacher and clinical social worker.

“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.”
