Rev. Myra Brown - Third African American Woman Ordained Catholic Priest

The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests congratulates Rev. Myra Brown on the occasion of her ordination as a Catholic priest. Rev. Myra has been a member of Spiritus Christi Church in Rochester, NY for the past 25 years where she served as youth minister, community activist, associate pastor and deacon.

ARCWP members, Jim Marsh, Joan Chesterfield and Mary Theresa Streck, along with Myra's family and friends, joyfully watched as Bishop Christine Mayr-Lumetzberger, a Roman Catholic bishop from Austria, ordained Rev. Myra.

Rev. Myra is one of three African American women ordained as Catholic Priests in the United States.
