Dr. Phyllis Zagano

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2019

“What about Women Deacons?”

Do women have a future in our Catholic Church? What is the role of women in the Church? Come listen to Dr. Phyllis Zagano as she talks to us about these topics and leave with a sense of hope and excitement about the future of women in the Church. Dr. Zagano is an acknowledged expert on the question of restoring women to the ordained diaconate in the Catholic Church and is a member of the Papal Commission for the study of the diaconate of women.
