On Friday night, May 16,  our Resurrection Community in Cincinnati celebrated the ordination of Paula Hoeffer as priest and Kathleen Bean as deacon. The entire community and guests gathered to witness this joyful event as Paula is an original member of our community -- four years old this May. Presiding bishop was Joan Houk from Pittsburgh of the RCWP Great Waters Region accompanied by RCWP women priests who participated in the ordination. Dr. Debra Myers, who was ordained an ARCWP priest in Cincinnati last May, vested Paula along with Ed Hoeffer, Paula’s husband. ARCWP priests who serve the Resurrection community include Dr. Debra Myers of nearby Batavia, Rosemarie Smead of Louisville, Donna Rougeux of Danville, KY and Janice Sevre-Duszynska of Lexington who lived in Cincinnati from 2009-2011. The Resurrection Community rose up around Janice's priesthood. At Wednesday night’s monthly Eucharist at Resurrection Community, Janice led the community in blessing for Paula’s priestly ordination.
