Pope Francis has said repeatedly that he wants to see greater roles for women in the Roman Catholic Church, and some argue that he could take a giant step in that direction by appointing women to the College of Cardinals.
An Episcopal Church is one of a large group of pastors and churches in Sanford, Florida, working with the U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service (CRS) to monitor the Trayvon Martin investigation and the trial of George Zimmerman.
The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity. Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
