This letter by Brendan Butler raises the issue of spiritual, theological and pastoral preparation of Irish priests . View link to People's Catholic Seminary to see our online courses. I believe that priestly preparation should prepare mystics, prophets and sacramental ministers in an empowered community of equals, a non-clerical approach.

An Irish welcome for group of women priests
Sir, – It was wonderful to read of an Irish woman, Bridget Mary Meehan, who is both an ordained priest and bishop in the 230-strong worldwide Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, being welcomed back to Ireland (News, August 8th) Maybe the Irish hierarchy might welcome this organisation to train our aspiring priests in Maynooth and Rome. – Yours, etc,
Malahide, Co Dublin.
