Catholics and the Magisterium in Dialogue

San Francisco Bay Catholic Special Section

Tradition and the ordination of Women

This Catholic site is committed to providing you with both sides of the issues that the Church is discussing, perhaps this is what makes our site unique. Our focus is on theology and news, not piety. Issues such as the possibility of the Church ordaining women to the priesthood are controversial. It is not our intention to shock but rather provide serious Catholics and Catholic theology students with a free flow of responsible theological source material to aid in the development of an ADULT CATHOLIC FAITH and an ADULT INFORMED CONSCIENCE.
