Catholic Women Preach

“God calls us to embody God’s universal unconditional love. Only then does our true identity as the People of God become visible,” says Sr. Jamie Phelps, O.P. in the first of the series of homilies by Catholic women.  Starting with the first Sunday of Advent, 2016, see and hear these on-line at 
Catholic Women Preach is an innovative project designed to address some of the most pressing challenges facing the Church today by responding to Pope Francis’ call for broader and more active engagement of the baptized in the preaching mission of the Church. CWP offers the theologically informed perspectives of Catholic women to serve as an inspirational, theologically based resource for ordained priests, deacons, catechists, and all involved in the ministry of the word in the Catholic Church.  
This is one of many initiatives to recognize women’s gifts.  In August, 2016 Pope Francis created acommission to examine women being deacons. This followed the request for such a study at the gathering of the leaders of women religious in Rome which Sr. Tere Maya, CCVI, attended.
