Our team! Sr. Anne Miller FMM, chair of Housetop Care Limited

Our women priests’ core team consists of eight members, six of whom work on a voluntary basis. Our members are: Sr. Anne Miller who heads our board of Trustees; John Wijngaards, honorary (unpaid) webmaster of the website; Jos our Webweaver and full-time administrator of our office; Roy Barton, researcher; Jackie Clackson, networking; Joanna Dixon, data base maintenance; Sr. Deirdre Ford, scanning; Barbara Paskins, web editing; and Mary Simpson, scanning.

Our Board of Academic Advisors includes ten scholars specialised in Sacred Scripture, dogmatic theology, church history, patristics and other branches of theology. They hail from universities and colleges in seven countries. They give their advice free of cost.

We have around 45 voluntary helpers from many countries who help us from home in many ways. The number fluctuates, but this will give an impression:

Voluntary work done Number involved Paid?
Obtaining permissions, computer programming, compiling bibliographies, research, translations from French and German into English seven (highly qualified) all give their services freely
translation from English to French one receives part payment
translation from English to German six all give their services freely
translation from English to Dutch six all give their services freely
translation from English to Spanish six all give their services freely
translation from English to Italian two both give their services freely
translation from English to Polish one gives her services freely
translation from English to Portuguese one gives her services freely

So altogether more than fifty people are working for this website on a voluntary basis. But they need the support of our office facilities.

And, please, consider these options too:

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.

Visitors to our website since January 2014.
Pop-up names are online now.

The number is indicative, but incomplete. For full details click on cross icon at bottom right.
