A Word About “Women Who Stay”

The Women Who Stay ministry at St. Ignatius Catholic Community explores and advocates for the full participation of all of the faithful in the life of the Church and the inclusion of women in her governance and sacramental ministry.

We study Scripture, scholarly commentary, theology and history.
We stay abreast of news, advancements and challenges in the Church.
We develop responses to events relevant to our mission.
We collaborate with other ministries within and beyond St. Ignatius and with other organizations whose mission and work coincide with ours.

We sponsor an annual symposium with an expert on a timely topic, which attracts attendees from other churches.

Through all of these activities, we seek to discern our own roles and to pave the way for future generations of girls and young women coming of age as leaders in the Church.

The meeting takes place on the third Tuesday of each month at  7 PM. The next meeting is September 15 via Zoom. The discussion will center on the introduction and chapter 1 of  The Subversive Power of Love: the Vision of Henriette Delille by acclaimed African-American feminist theologian M. Shawn Copeland, available from the publisher, Paulist Press Press, as well as Amazon and other online booksellers. All are welcome.
