In this essay I will be discussing the role of women in a catholic church, the history of the Catholic Church and what role they play now, and what the official stance of the Catholic Church concerning women is in this time period. By these decisions being made within the churches head authority members who are officially priests. Finally in this essay we will determine whether women should still be ordained or if they should become priests. (Farians)

Here’s some history in which women in the Catholic Church went through. “In the Roman Catholic Church the struggle for women's liberation is being waged on many fronts and at many levels. There have been demands for the ordination of women to the priesthood, and in fact women are studying in Catholic seminaries hoping one day to be ordained.” I believe that women should not be denied in the priesthood of the Catholic Church for the fact being it should not matter whether your male or female everybody goes in the church for one purpose and that’s to seek God and to do the work of God. If we can all seek God we all can be voted in on being a priest in a Catholic Church. This is the role the women in the Catholic Church play now, “There are many important and fulfilling roles that woman can and do fill. We are mothers, we are religious, we are teachers, principles, parish secretaries, we head parish and diocesan ministries, and we are Eucharistic Minister, Lectors and Ministers of the Word.” (Esteves) In my opinion women understand the bible just as much as men, they are faithful and can stand out just like men as children of God.
