Local Criticsms of Deacons Plan for Killaloe Diocese/ ARCWP Ordains Women Deacons and Priests

Women Priests from the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests -ARCWP- are here in Ireland on a pilgrimage. We support the full equality of women as the will of God in our times We ordain women called and hope one day to ordain women in Ireland as deacons and priests. Contact Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP, sofiabmm@aol.com, www.arcwp.org

 
The diocese of Killaloe are inviting married men to get involved in many priestly duties like baptisms, weddings and burial services after a four year training programme that's not open to women.
Posters have been erected in many local churches in Clare saying "Women have had enough Discrimination" and calling for both male and female members of the laity to be allowed to participate more in church services.
An online poll of over 300 people on the www.clare.fm website suggests that 80% of people agree that women should be allowed to become deacons too.:
