Catholic women deacons ‒ why not?

June 02, 2018 Comments Andrea Dean

I wonder if, like me, you were curious and hopeful when you heard the news that Pope Francis ‒ responding to a question posed by members of the International Union of Superiors General (IUSG) in May 2016 – had established a commission to study the question of ordaining women deacons in the Roman Catholic Church.
