“The apostles recognized the pastoral needs of the Church and created the ministry of deacons. If the vocations of women as deacons were again recognized, as in the early centuries of the Church, the Body of Christ would be strengthened. Discerning Deacons is helping renew the Church by engaging Catholics in this discernment.”

Yolanda Scott Brown, D.Min.served as the Parish Life Director at Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood, California.

“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?”
