Kathryn Shea ARCWP and Lee Breyer co-preside at liturgy at
Mary Mother of Jesus Inclusive Catholic Community in Florida

Bridget Mary's Response:
Our church has a long way to go to break the stained glass ceiling!
Inspired by our sisters in main line congregations who have blazed a courageous path ahead of us, our international women priests movement began the long journey towards equality in the Roman Catholic Church with the ordination of seven women on the Danube in 2002.
Our women priests minister in alternative Catholic faith communities that welcome everyone to receive sacraments.  In 2017, there are approximately 235 ordained women in Europe, Canada, U.S., Latin America and Africa.
