RCWP Canada Prepares to Ordain New Bishop this month in Calgary


Jane Kryzanowski will be the first Roman Catholic Woman Priest to be ordained bishop on Canadian soil.

REGINA, SK, July 2, 2018 — On July 21, 2018, the eve of the feast of St. Mary of Magdala, Jane Kryzanowki of Regina will be ordained bishop for RCWP Canada, replacing Marie Bouclin of Sudbury who is retiring as bishop after serving for seven years.

According to the bishop-elect, "The Spirit of God appears to be moving among the people of God, calling women to be priests."  Marie and Jane are among women who have heard the call and responded. Small faith communities are coming together asking for the pastoral services of women. The merging of these two streams -- the call of the Spirit and the call of people -- is gaining momentum across Canada. Women priests are serving in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchwan, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. Jane Kryzanowski will be the first Roman Catholic Woman Priest to be ordained bishop on Canadian soil.

In conjuction with the episcopal ordination, the RCWP Canada community is inviting the public to a presentation by bishops from Canada and the United States on the growth and development of the women's ordination movement. It will be held Friday evening, July 20, 2018, 7-9 pm, the EEEL Building, 750 Campus Drive NW, University of Calgary. (Use Parking - Lot 21), Calgary, Alberta.
