If you are a Catholic woman ... is Christ calling you to the priesthood?
Else, do you know any Catholic woman who feels she is being called to
There is a new gateway to information about ordination of women in the
Mary Magdalene the Apostle Catholic Gateway
The objective of this website is to identify options available to
catholic women who are trying to discern a vocation to ordained
ministry, but do not have ready access to such information. It should
be clearly understood, however, that this gateway does not lead to an
"ordination mill". Referrals will be given only to churches and
jurisdictions that provide rigorous priestly training -- theologically,
pastorally, and spiritually.
Bishop Sharon Hart of the Contemporary Catholic Church is the episcopal
sponsor of this website. Candidates will be carefully screened, and
then viable ones will be given the contact info for jurisdictions and
bishops who should be able to test their vocation and provide seminary
training, taking into account their theological insights and pastoral
gifts. Diversity will be encouraged within the legitimate bounds of the
"one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church" (Nicene Creed).
Please spread the word ... share this info with your friends and
associates, specially women who may have a priestly vocation but need
encouragement and counseling ... and please, pray for us.
