Are Women Deacons Next? with Phyllis Zagano, Ph.D.
Friday, March 5th Via Zoom Only
Live presentation at 12:00 p.m. with a replay at 7:00 p.m. PST
Part of Holy Family’s Friday Lenten “Lucis” Speaker Series “Lucis” means “light” and comes from the Latin verb “lucere” meaning “to shine”.
Each Friday during Lent, Holy Family will have a powerful and enlightening presentation by well-known national and local speakers.
In January, on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Pope Francis announced changes to Canon Law to allow women to be permanently installed in the lay ministries of lector and acolyte. What on the surface might appear underwhelming actually represents an historic shift in the roles of women in the Catholic Church. Dr. Phyllis Zagano will explore the significance of this change and what it may mean in the evolving role of women in the Church.
Dr. Phyllis Zagano is an internationally acclaimed Catholic scholar, author, and lecturer on contemporary spirituality and women’s issues in Catholicism. She was a member of the original Papal Commission for the Study of the Diaconate of Women. Winner of two Fulbright awards, she holds a research appointment at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York, where she is also adjunct professor of religion.
