Last year, Elizabeth started a blog called Liturgy on the Margins, to share with those who are doing diaconal ministry in Australia. From this, a group called Australian Catholics Exploring the Diaconate began. Some of those involved are ordained, some are precluded from ordination because of their gender and some are supporters. Since then, there have been some rich conversations, learning about the vision of the permanent diaconate, and exploring vocational pathways. In this workshop, Elizabeth will be joined by one of the ACED members, Catherine Craner, to share about the vision, the discussion and this liturgical/pastoral call.

Presenters: Elizabeth Young RSM & Catherine Craner
