Versailles Report

Status of agreed statements:
Agreed statements have been agreed by the dialogue members and submitted to the sponsoring churches for study. These texts express the careful considerations of the members of the dialogue but are not official statements of either of the churches.

Given that certain churches of the Anglican Communion have ordained women to the presbyterate, the question posed to the Consultation was not to discuss whether or not it is right to ordain women, but to consider ‘to what extent and in what ways churches with women priests and churches without women priests can be reconciled in sacramental fellowship’.
