Panel Reflects on the 40th Anniversary of Women’s Ordination and it’s Legacy




On August 24, 2014, the Advocate hosted a diocesan celebration of the 40th anniversary of the ordination of women in the Episcopal Church. Following the Eucharist, and the sermon by The Rev. Carter Heyward, a panel discussed the legacy of that first ordination and how it might inspire the mission and ministry of the Church today. The panel was facilitated by The Rt. Rev. Michael B. Curry, Bishop of North Carolina. It included The Rev. Dr. Lauren Winner, The Rev. Dr. Carter Heyward, and seminarian Hershey Mallette, and the Advocate’s Theologian in Residence, Dr. Sam Laurent.
