We need translators
We need people with various skills and computer competence,
such as editing documents for use on the Internet; web promotion; newspaper publicity; academic research; contact follow up.
Our central office is situated in North London, in Rickmansworth, Herts , UK. Those who live within striking distance are very welcome to assist us in our office. We have a number of computers and other office equipment. But in our new technological age so much can also be done through work at home and effective communication.
Have you published articles or written research documents that could be of use to us?
We depend a lot on contributions by people in various specialized areas of academic research. If you happen to have published on any issue relating to the ordination of women, either in a narrow sense or on any theme that is closely related to it, we are extremely grateful for your permission to republish it on our website. We will do our utmost to obtain the permission also of the publisher of the book or magazine in which your contribution appeared.
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.
