(Photo by Jonathan Smith JLS Photo)Call To Action is sickened to hear about the brutal attack on Rev. Alexandra Dyer, a valued member of the Roman Catholic Womenpriest community. We are horrified by this violent assault on a brave woman of faith who serves those on the margins in New York City area with compassion and dedication. This type of violence has no place in our society.

At a time when women continue to face oppression within the institutional Catholic Church and across the globe, we applaud Rev. Dyer’s decision to lead a life rooted in spiritual leadership and compassionate service.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rev. Dyer, her family, and the Roman Catholic Womenpriest community during this difficult time.
