Versailles Report

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’.
