|Aims & Objectives
This website (www.womenpriests.org) has the following concrete objectives:
In spite of Vatican IIs calling for a lawful freedom of inquiry, freedom of thought and freedom of expression in the Church (Gaudium et Spes § 62), we are facing enormous opposition from the institutional Church. This means that many avenues of fundraising are closed to us.
We need your financial help for this project to survive!
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.
