What is it like to be a woman in ministry in Ireland? Why do they do it and what are the joys, challenges, and everyday realities of this way of life? For the first time, female pastors, chaplains, spiritual guides, priests, religious sisters, youth ministers, and many more have been asked to tell their stories. These are brought together in the words of women across the Christian denominations and from the four corners of Ireland; in the voices of anonymous participants and those who have been ministry pioneers and leaders: Dr. Ruth Patterson, Dr. Heather Morris, Sr. Margaret Kiely, Ms. Soline Humbert, and Bishop Pat Storey. The result is an account of lives and ministries that are truly extraordinary and that present both a blessing and a prophetic challenge to the churches and communities in which they serve.
