Can you find some info on women deacons?


#1

I am looking for early (Council of Nicea?) statements about the non-ordination of women as deacons and the statement of the International Theological Commission on the issue. Thanks.

Hi Father,

Here is the Council of Nicea on the subject:

I started with the original Catholic Encyclopedia:

Deaconesses

The other info I found by simply using Google. I mention this because it’s such a valuable tool. A good amount of the information we give here anyone could get by simply checking a search engine and the original Catholic Encyclopedia on line.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
