St Phoebe Celebration

September 3 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

St Phoebe Mass celebration during the Sunday Masses (9 am and 11 am) September 3, 2023,  at St Matthias Church, 1566 Ferris Rd, Columbus.  St Phoebe was a female deacon in early Christianity.  After Mass, copies of the book Women: Icons of Christ by Phyllis Zagano should be available for purchase at St Matthias.

Pope Francis asked the Church to hold a conversation as to whether we should have women deacons.  This Mass will be the first part of a program to discuss reinstatement of women deacons in the Church.  The second part of the program will be a review of the book Women: Icons of Christ by Phyllis Zagano.  The book review is expected to be held at 7 pm on Thursdays September 7, 14 and 21 at St Matthias.

The third part of this program, asking whether women should be deacons, is expected to be at 7 pm Thursday October 12 with a guest speaker at St Matthias.  Details to follow.
