About Discerning Deacons
Discerning Deacons is an organization dedicated to advocating for the increased involvement of women in the Catholic Church. Our mission is to support and promote the participation of women in various church ministries, with a focus on the diaconate with its emphasis on the Ministry of the Word and Charity.
About the Certificate in the Ministry of the Word
The importance of equipping Catholic women to preach has come alive, recently, during the listening and discernment processes unfolding in an innovative global synod “For a Synodal Church: Participation, Communion, and Mission.” As the Church considers opening up new paths to preaching for women, it is imperative that women have opportunities to learn how to preach well. Discerning Deacons is partnering with The Center for Spirituality at Saint Mary’s College to design a low-residency, two-year certificate program for the education and formation of Roman Catholic women who are called to preach. By partnering with the Center for Spirituality at Saint Mary’s College we can build a robust and sustainable program because we are working from a strong and supportive foundation. Part of our ongoing partnership with Saint Mary’s will aim to embed this certificate program within the school as part of their continuing education offerings. Though this certificate program is intended to train Roman Catholic women, it will model high-quality and highly supported education for lay leaders in preaching and presiding. If successful, this certificate program will cast a vision for academically rigorous, Spirit-filled, socially transformative lay training that could be shared across denominations, operate in any language, and engage persons of all genders, ages, and types of ability – including priests and deacons seeking continuing formation in their preaching vocation.
