The pope’s Council of Cardinals concluded a meeting at the Vatican this morning with Pope Francis to reflect on “the role of women in the Church.”
Three women also participated in the Feb. 5-6 meeting, notably including a female Anglican bishop, Jo Bailey Wells.
Wells is deputy general secretary of the Anglican Communion and was part of the first generation of women ordained vicars in the Church of England in 1995. She is currently married to an Anglican clergyman and is the mother of two children.
Wells is also known for her advocacy of “gender equality” and for having led an interfaith meeting attended by Pope Francis in Kazakhstan in October 2022. She has also been chaplain to the archbishop of Canterbury.
