"Meet South Carolina’s First Woman Catholic Priest" Article featuring Interview with Jill Striebinger ARCWP






“As a woman priest, Jill will utilize feminine images of God in worship to reflect the mothering love of a God who embraces all her children, especially the most vulnerable. Jill has created a contemporary Rosary that relates to parents who experience stress, anxiety, and doubt in raising their children and providing for their well-being. Jill plans to start a local support prayer and advocacy group for mothers in her area as well as online. She also plans to be an advocate of restorative justice in her local community. Jill sees her ordination as a prophetic act of obedience to the Spirit for gender equality and a clarion call to action in response to Pope Francis’s failure to revise Canon Law on Women’s Ordination and his failure to include women in decisions affecting the care and control of their bodies.”
