This Sunday, December 8, we’ll be saying a prayer of thanksgiving and celebration as five women are ordained to the priesthood.  God truly calls people of all genders to ministry and we’re so glad to be celebrating with these women and their communities.

“I seek to renew the institutional church. I want to bring hope and healing in a world where misogyny inflicts violence” says one candidate for ordination.  Another “feels called to minister to Catholics who have left the church but long for a connection to the Mass, sacraments, community and the social justice dimension of Catholicism,” according to a statement released by the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.

If you live in the area, check out www.arcwp.org for details about attending the Mass and celebration.  No matter where you live, check out our work to support full equality for women in the church, and join us in celebrating women leaders by leaving a note on our Facebook page.

    This makes me very happy. When will the Church drop their feelings that one is not even allowed to discuss the issue of women priests? I hope to live long enough to see this accepted, Might want me to return to my Catholic Churcg in steade of going to the Episcopal where at age 86 I feel welcome!
