Summer school: Women Deacons

I'm taking a class this summer on women deacons in the Catholic tradition.  I read the book "Woman Deacons: Past, Present and Future" when it came out, and am looking forward to reading the newly translated essays by Cipriano Vagaggini on the ordination of women to the diaconate in the Eastern churches.  The materials include lectures by Sara Butler, Bill Dietwig and Gary Macy, in addition to Phyllis Zagano, who has organized the course out of Hofstra.

After years of producing screen casts and other virtual materials for my students, I'm enjoying being on the other end.  There are about 200 people enrolled from all over the world, which should lead to a rich discussion.

The course is free and you can sign up here if you are interested.
