How do you benefit from being a Friend?
1.You share in our work as a real partner
We cannot all do the same thing. Some need to plan, to give academic advice, to research, to photocopy texts in university libraries, to coordinate the work. Others need to scan, to proofread, to edit, to transfer text into HTML format and insert internal and external links. Others again need to translate into the key languages spoken in our Church. Last not least, some provide the financial backing through which the basic costs for all this can be met.
By your regular donation you will ensure that our campaign will maintain and increase its efficiency.
2. We will send you our regular electronic Newsletter
Through this we update you regarding new material published on our website and about other important developments relating to women priests.
3. Last not least, you will be part of our network of prayer
From the beginning we have always been convinced that our action in the Church will only be fruitful if it is carried by prayer.
Every week, on Mondays at 12.00 noon UK time, we celebrate a team eucharist in which we reflect on Sacred Scripture, break the bread and remember our friends and contacts world wide.
This website is maintained by the Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research.
The Institute is known for issuing academic reports and statements on relevant issues in the Church. These have included scholars' declarations on the need of collegiality in the exercise of church authority, on the ethics of using contraceptives in marriage and the urgency of re-instating the sacramental diaconate of women.
You are welcome to use our material. However: maintaining this site costs money. We are a Charity and work mainly with volunteers, but we find it difficult to pay our overheads.
