ARCWP Welcomes Vatican Inclusion of WOC Resource

Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests Welcome Vatican’s Inclusion of the Women’s Ordination Conference as a Resource on its Website for 2023 Synod

January 22, 2022

After our prayer-filled wait of many years, the Vatican is now including the Women’s Ordination Conference (WOC) on its website as a resource for the worldwide 2023 Synod. We are grateful for the support WOC has provided us over the years and we hope that the men at the Vatican and others will come to understand that like them, women are stirred by the Spirit and called to priesthood. With grace, may they realize that the Spirit speaks and works through everyone in all ways, regardless of gender.  We thank our brothers at the Vatican for this positive step forward towards a more inclusive Church.
