Finding Your Voice Teleconference Series

FutureChurch’s Women and the Word teleconferences returned in 2013 with a three-part series focused on educating and empowering callers to find their own voice and advocate for justice in their diocese. Each teleconference reached between 60-150 people.

In February Sr. Kate spoke on the rights and obligations of the laity as found in Book Two of Canon Law. She reminded us that all Catholics can and should use Canon Law as a tool for seeking justice. 

Dr. Paul Lakeland joined us in April to discuss primacy of conscience and when it is necessary to dissent. He offered guidance on the importance of forming our conscience and the obligation of Catholics to act in accordance with our conscience at all times.

May’s presentation by Dr. Zagano outlined the case for ordaining women as deacons in the Roman Catholic Church. Inspired by this foundation, FutureChurch is creating a network of information and support for communities and potential deacon candidates*.

If you missed any or all of these calls, podcasts are available at futurechurch.org. We hope you are inspired to advocate for justice in your community and that you Find Your Voice!

*If you feel called to the diaconate or would like to be a local organizer in support of this effort please contact liz@futurechurch.org for more information.
