Sr Judy Coyle IHM on women’s ministry in the Catholic Church

Judy Coyle IHM has had extensive experience of being a pastoral worker in both the USA and South Africa. She holds a doctoral degree in theology and has taught liturgy and spirituality for many years at various academic institutions. She believes that the role of women, especially in ministry, needs to be urgently addressed in the Catholic Church.[/vc_column_text]

Addressing the study on women deacons instituted by Pope Francis, she says that she believes that women should be ordained but that this should be in the Church, by the Church and for the Church.

Judy talks to Russell Pollitt SJ about the diaconate, women in ministry and women’s ordination.
