Commission on women diacons


August 06, 2016

carmen sammutNEWS 2016 - We welcome whole heartedly yesterday’s announcement from the Vatican that Pope Francis has named the members of the

Commission to study the question of the diaconate for women

We are deeply grateful to Pope Francis for this response to the suggestion of a Commission made during the May audience with the worldwide leaders of women’s religious congregations. The establishment of this Commission is an opportunity for all to study the role of women deacons in the early church’s life and ministry and to see if this role might be fruitfully re-established in today’s context.
