Women of Faith: A Conference on Participation and Leadership
Women of Faith: A Conference on Participation and Leadership

Women serve as diocesan chancellors, seminary faculty, Catholic school superintendents, diocesan directors of liturgy and worship, pastoral planners, catechetical leaders and in many other areas of leadership. Yet, despite a trend toward the inclusion of women in leadership positions, there is abundant evidence of the church culture that is far from welcoming of the gifts and talents of women. Only 16 percent of today’s Vatican employees, professional and clerical, are female, for example. These conference proceedings include the viewpoints of women of the highest responsibilities as church employees sharing their experience and wisdom on the work ahead to build a church that lives what it believes about the dignity and equality of all of its members.
