The role of ordination in the Catholic Church is an important event in that it creates a person with a closer relationship to the church and with Christ. Over the years, the ordination of men has been embraced as an act signified by Jesus in the selection of 12 apostles (Gary, 2007). However, the ordination of women in the past church was never allowed. This placed women in the society as only servants of the church. Leaders in society in the Catholic faith must be ordained to hold such a position. This role of women was, however, criticized since women were willing to increase their services to the church and society. For this reason, women began to be ordained by the church to serve in society (Allen, 2009).
