Welcome to PCS 304: Praying with Women in Ministry in the Early Church

In the early Church, we encounter the teaching, preaching, and leadership of women such as Junia, Phoebe, Priscilla, Lydia, and Mary, the mother of John Mark—all confident, independent, generous, faithful women, aware of their spiritual power and authority. The story of Thecla, a woman apostle who appears in the apocryphal book Acts of Paul and Thecla, reveals the tremendous impact of women’s solidarity in times of opposition, crisis, and rejection.

The women leaders in the early church show us how to nurture inclusive communities of faith where all are welcome. Their lives are a source of inspiration and an incentive to renewal in our commitment to work for justice, peace, and equality in our world. We can learn much about faith, hope, and love from these daring disciples.

From all over the world, sisters, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, women of many cultures, races, and ethnic backgrounds are sharing their dreams and visions to birth a new paradigm of worship, prayer, and community.
