Keep the Faith, Change the Church.

Please Pray for Our Next Healing Circle

On Saturday, Feb. 6, VOTF and the Greater Philadelphia affiliate will host another healing circle. Please join us in praying for those who will attend.

Philippians 4:6-7: "Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

Brief Note on Women Deacons

Phyllis Zagano of Hofstra University and a leading authority on women deacons in the Catholic Church recently published a note on the issue in the Harvard Divinity Bulletin. Dr. Zagano summarizes the back-and-forth that has ensued since Vatican II among those theologians and scholars who acknowledge the evidence for women deacons and those who say that any ordination of a female, even as a deacon, cannot be allowed.
