On Thur. June 25, 2009, supporters of the Women's Ordination Conference gathered to pay tribute to Aisha Taylor outgoing Executive Director of the Women's Ordination Conference. Fr. Roy Bourgeois, MM, threatened with excommunication for his public support of women's ordination in Washington DC gave a powerful talk addressing the importance of solidarity with the women's ordination movement. He recalled that he became involved when he attended the ordination of Janice Sevre-Duszynska in Lexington, Kentucky. This prophetic action on his part resulted in the treat of excommunication by the Vatican. The Maryknoll Order stood by Roy as their brother and a member of their community whom they continue to support.

Andrea Johnson and Bridget Mary Meehan from Roman Catholic Womenpriests attended this gala event that paid tribute to Aisha Taylor's many accomplishments during her five year tenure a WOC. Erin Hanna led the tributes and will continue the essential mission of the Women's Ordination Conference.

I feel hopeful that young women like Aisha, Erin and Laura are leading the way to the full equality of women in the Roman Catholic Church. May justice for women in the church become a reality in our lifetime!

Bridget Mary Meehan, RCWP
