Have you read our section on the need of speaking out?

We recommend the dramatization/reconstruction of the ancient rite of ordaining women deacons. This is a powerful tool to show that women did receive Holy Orders. If they could be deacons then, they can be priests now - for no one doubts the unity of the sacrament.

We are not able to coordinate local campaigns for the ordination of women from our website. However, we gladly provide information if there are programmes of a long-term nature. Moreover, support for such campaigns can often been found through the national organizations that exist in many countries, most of whose addresses we have. Visit our links page.

Also, our website contains much information and many suggestions that may be of great use to you in keeping the idea of women priests alive in your own locality.

Wijngaards Institute for Catholic ResearchThis 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.

Visit also our websites:Women Deacons, The Body is Sacred and Mystery and Beyond.

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.
