Women's Ordination Worldwide- Vocation Sunday - Hear Our Calll- See Pihotos!

WOW e-news
Vocation Sunday - Hear Our Call!
Vocation Sunday Vigils in Armagh, Ireland; Baltimore, US; Brussels, Belgium; Bristol, UK; London, UK

To have gone to the press and onto the streets and declared publicly in front of our cathedrals that a great wrong was being done to women in the church put our hearts into our mouths.
But, in the prophetic tradition, it isn't a bad place for the heart to be kept.

Patricia Brennan, prophet of women's ordination
We know that Catholic women are called by God and by their communities: called to priesthood, to equality, and to full participation in the life of the Church.

We also know that too often, their call remains untold, dismissed, or rejected.

That's why Women's Ordination Worldwide and Women's Ordination Conference are launching Catholic Women Called - a new video storytelling series of women called to renewed priesthood. Whether ordained, on the path to ordination, or living with the tension within the institutional Church, women long to share the truth of their vocation with the world.

WOW Prayer

O Holy One, You who are Creator of all,
who made humanity in Your image

Saviour of all, who called women and men
to witness Your ministry, death and resurrection,

Inspirer of all who seek and serve,

We thank You for the women You have blessed with Your call
to celebrate the Eucharist,
to minister alongside their brothers in a renewed Roman Catholic Church.

We pray that the Church will soon welcome and nourish to the full
the gifts of women as priests, prophets and leaders,
knowing, as Mary of Nazareth knew,
that with You all things are possible.
