Faced with a declining number of women who are choosing to devote their lives to God, the Catholic Church now is accepting people who would have been excluded in the past. For instance, some larger orders are opening their doors to divorced women, an important change in a church that deplores divorce.
The Evening Sun would like to know what Roman Catholics and others think. Are you Catholic or non-Catholic? Should divorced women be allowed to become nuns?
To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today through midnight Sunday. After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
Look for the results in Monday's Evening Sun.
