To Baltimore (MD) area media: This Sunday, April 22nd from 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m., I will be outside the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (409 Cathedral Street, Baltimore) in my alb and stole witnessing for the acceptance of women priests in the Roman Catholic Church. I was ordained a priest in on Aug. 9, 2008 in Lexington, Kentucky.

This Sunday, April 22nd is “Vocations Sunday” in the Roman Catholic Church: an effort to attract males to become priests or brothers and women to become nuns. Some Catholic women, however, have prophetically crossed over into the future of the Church: Since 2002, (with the Danube 7 than 250 women have been ordained priests. The international Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement is mainly in the U.S., Canada and Colombia, South America, and also in 11 countries. Our ordinations are considered valid because a bishop in apostolic succession ordained our first women bishops. In prophetic obedience we violated church law because an unjust law sometimes must be broken in order to be changed.
