Episode 26 :: Discerning Deacons with Ellie Hidalgo

Welcome back for Season 4! Today I’m talking with Ellie Hidalgo. She’s on staff with Discerning Deacons, a recent effort to promote dialogue around the issue of reinstating women deacons in the Catholic Church. We talk about this recent movement to recover the true memory of women in early Christianity – shout out to St. Phoebe– and about Ellie’s personal journey to doing this work. You’ll love hearing how she started out in Catholic journalism, the inside scoop on Pope Francis’ commissions on women deacons, and why Ellie says ordination of women deacons matters.

Listen here.
