Bridget Mary's Response:
What a courageous priest following in the footsteps of Jesus who had both women and men disciples! In diocese after diocese, (including the large New York Archdiocese) parishes are being closed or consolidated because of the shortage of priests.
Father Dermot Rodgers is stepping up and creating a renewed, inclusive parish that honors the gifts of God in all God's holy people.
I hope many more priests will do the same!
