Dr Sharon Tighe-Mooney

Two years ago Sharon Tighe-Mooney published What About Me? Women and the Catholic Church. This was an exploration of the arguments given by the Catholic Church to exclude women from holding official roles in the Church, and to examine what those arguments might reveal in terms of the story of women, alongside the development of the ministerial priesthood. Researching the book exposed the dependence for authoritative Catholic Church teachings on church council documents, papal edicts, the Magisterium, the writings of Church Fathers, and the concept of Sacred Tradition rather than on Scripture. This prompted Sharon to read and study the entire Bible – an ongoing process – which led her down an entirely unexpected path towards an understanding of the primacy of scripture and the need to seek out a bible-based church.
