Dear Friends of ARCWP:

The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests (ARCWP) wish to thank you for standing beside us as you support our ministries through sharing in our Eucharistic communities, Your enthusiasm, prayers and donations during this past year have enabled us to grow and serve our communities, especially by adding three new bishops to our beloved association, bringing us to a total of four bishops.  Joyfully, we number forty-two priests, fourteen deacons and six candidates along with three support personnel.
         
Ordination of our three new bishops
Our branch of the international women priest movement is working to renew priestly ministry through administrating the sacraments and sharing our Sacred Table in the future with our brothers in the Roman Catholic Church.    

ARCWP is located in the United States, Canada, and South America leading inclusive, enthusiastic, egalitarian communities where all are welcome to share at the Eucharistic Table.
 
The Spirit is calling more women and we are answering “yes”.  During this “Year of Mercy”, we ask our church leaders to extend mercy and acceptance of all women priests.

Yearly, we come to you dear friends, family, communities, and supporters to humbly ask for your financial assistance. Our greatest needs are two-fold: supporting ordinations and travel to the local community for these ordinations. Any gift, no matter the amount, makes you part of our movement for justice and equality in our beloved Church.  Please give as you are able.


Asking God’s blessing for you and your loved ones this Christmas Season.
Rev. Barbara Anne Duff
Treasurer 

For: The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.
