Women in Ministry is a group of women who believe that, through Baptism, women as well as men are called to ministries in the Church, including ordination. In solidarity and through prayer and action, we serve our Church community by:
- Promoting the liberating message of the Gospel.
- Increasing the awareness of sexism within the Catholic community.
- Working to eradicate unjust policies that prevent all of God’s people from using their gifts.
Women in Ministry meets one evening each month at a member’s home for discussion of readings, preparation of retreats, prayer, and sharing a sense of community. The group participates in a weekend retreat each year. When issues arise in the Church, the group prepares a written response.
Sharing life stories gives concrete examples of God’s grace in our lives. We encourage and learn from one another, and grow in relationship with God and each other. This group is open to all women in the parish. Members take turns facilitating and hosting meetings. There is no chair.
