St. Phoebe the Deaconess. In the early Chuch there were women deacons. However, they were limited to that role and were not allowed in the priesthood. The reason for the deaconesses: it was considered improper for males to be physically handling women, so deaconesses were commissioned to assist especially in baptism and chrismation. While there are no liturgically recognized female deacons in the Orthodox Church in the USA, there are some in Japan, Russia and Greece.

Mary means ‘wise woman/lady’. It is a Greek form of the Hebrew Miriam or Mariamme, and was the most popular woman's name at the time - perhaps a tribute to the young and beautiful Princess Mariamme, murdered by her husband King Herod in 28/27BC. Mary came from a now-vanished town called Magdala, on the western side of the Sea of Galilee. She is often called Mary Magdalene
