Lexington Woman Ordained a Priest
Saturday, 09 August 2008 19:13
A Lexington woman goes against centuries of tradition and the Catholic Church to be ordained a priest. Jane Sevre-Duszynska was publicly ordained Saturday afternoon as a Roman Catholic woman-priest. Ten years ago, Sevre-Duszynska asked a Lexington bishop to ordain her as priest. He refused. Even so she never gave up her belief she had been called to the ministry. Saturday, inside the Unitarian Universalist church, she became the first woman in the South to be ordained by the Roman Catholic woman priest.
