The Table

This Sunday marks the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux, patron saint of women’s ordination. Members and supporters of the Women’s Ordination Conference, the “Little Flowers of the Grassroots,” will honor Therese through prophetic actions around the world. Join us in celebrating St. Therese and all women called to priestly ordination.

Here are some “Little Ways” to take action this Sunday:

  • Tweet for Therese. Here are some sample tweets to share on her feast day:
