Discerning Deacons TNail

April 29, 2021

Presenter:  Ellie Hidalgo, Casey Stanton, Luke Hansen

From the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena, a lay member of the Order of Preachers, we bring you a conversation with the founders of Discerning Deacons, a new initiative that is engaging Catholics in the discernment of our Church about the ordination of women to the diaconate. Here we invite you to witness the historical and contemporary diaconal ministry of Catholic women; explore the potential impact of women deacons in your parish, community and beyond; and discern how to participate in Pope Francis’ vision for a “synodal church” that walks together.

Sponsored by the STM.
