We want to keep you informed about ARCWP. Soon you will be receiving our new quarterly newsletter, LEADING. We cannot continue to flourish without your prayers, interest and support.
Since 2010, we have grown significantly in number from an initial group of 6 priests to 58 priests, 7 deacons, 5 candidates and several applicants in 2016. Our members work throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and South America. We are a branch of the international women priest movement. Our preparation program is life-long and integrates the mystical, prophetic and inclusive sacramental celebrations with contemporary theology.
ARCWP is a prophetic movement dedicated to gender equality, acceptance of all God’s children, and a return to the true meaning of the gospel. Embracing simplicity, kindness, and love of each other is evident through the willingness to aid those who require assistance. Our desire is to carry this message to everyone by working in hospices, universities, and servicing small faith communities. We serve the homeless, the sick and dying, the addicted, the abused, the neglected and the marginalized…the ones no one else wants to notice. We vigorously advocate for social justice.
And we need your help. If possible, please make a donation to our cause. Our Association must educate our candidates in contemporary theology, grow our movement through outreach and media, and defray the cost of ordinations. Any support, no matter the amount, is graciously accepted and makes you a part of our movement for justice and equality in our Church.
Your donation can be sent via credit card on our website (www.arcwp.org) where you can scroll down to the “donate” tab or mailed to: ARCWP, PO Box 2685, Orland Park, IL 60462.
With gratitude and daily prayer,
The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests
