Roman Catholic Women Priests are in Rome to Expand the Church’s Tent
In this historical moment, Roman Catholic Women Priests are in Rome to share our experiences of a renewed priestly ministry in inclusive communities around the world.
We are hopeful that the Spirit is moving in a new way that is welcoming and inclusive.
The Synodal documents call the Church to enlarge the “tent” for the marginalized and excluded and to create a “space of communion, a place of participation, and a foundation for mission.”
We call on Pope Francis to “walk the talk” by listening to our voices in a conversation on the diverse ways women priests are living radical hospitality and baptismal equality in sacramental and justice ministries. We have much to share!
Join us on October 11 at Casa Bonus Pastor to meet women priests who are leading the Church toward full equality of ordained women in ministry in inclusive communities and ministries where all are welcome.
