Discerning Deacons

Saint Barnabas, along with our neighboring parishes, Catholic high schools, community groups, and teen committee, was proud to host the Discerning Deacons in an incredible discussion around women being ordained deacons in the Catholic Church.  We packed the church with people ready to hear about the possibility of women having a greater role and how this might renew and energize our Church.  The Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union is hosting an exciting event September 29th at 6:00 PM in person and on zoom.  Details below- register today!
This grass roots group offers a forum for listening to voices in the Church and advancing discussion centered on the ordination of women to the Diaconate. Stay tuned for more ways to get involved.  Pictures from the event can be viewed in our photo gallery. 
Over 700 people gathered at St. Barnabas to hear about hope, change, and renewal in the Catholic Church.  We heard from the Discerning Deacons about the history and current movement around ordaining women as deacons.  If you missed it you can watch the event here!
