Women in the Diaconate: Past, Present & Future

March 30, 10am, Trinity Hall. RSVP.
Two years ago, Pope Francis appointed the first-ever special commission to study the possibility of ordaining women as deacons. The Pontifical Study Commission on the Diaconate of Women discussed questions surrounding the restoration of women to the ordained diaconate. One of the commission’s members, Dr. Phyllis Zagano, an expert on the question of restoring women to the ordained diaconate in the Catholic Church, was appointed to the commission by the Pope, and she will bring her perspective for discussion to Holy Trinity.
