Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests: Your Support Will Help Grow Our Movement for Women's Equality in Church

Dear Friends of ARCWP,

As the Association of Roman Catholic Priests emerged from the Roman Catholic Women’s Priest Movement with 1 Bishop, 5 priests and 1 deacon on 11/1/ 2010, it has grown in 5 short yearsto include 38 priests, 12 deacons and many candidates, serving in 15 states, 19 cities, 3 Canadian provinces, Europe and South America. With the realization of this exponential growth and newfound need, the decision to elect Bishops for the sole purpose of ordaining women trained and ready to live out gospel equality arose.
We are pleased to announce our new Bishops for the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests,

Olga Lucia Alvarez of Envigado, Columbia Mary Collingwood of Hudson, Ohio  Michele Birch Conery of  Windsor,  Ontario
