World Day of Prayer for Women's Ordination
is a concerted global action held
annually on March 25th, the feast of the Annunciation, to draw attention to calls of women as priests, deacons, and bishops into an inclusive and accountable Catholic Church. In solidarity with women's ordination advocates around the world, WOC members host prayer services and vigils to honor this special day.
