"Sheila Dierks paused a beat before answering an old acquaintance's question about what she'd been doing lately."

" 'I'm going to be ordained as a Catholic priest this weekend,' the 66-year-old Dierks told her."


Congratulations to Sheila and Teri on this historic occasion. I had the honor of spending a weekend with Sheila Dierks and speaking at two events sponsored by the ECC community in Colorado. I was the guest homilist for the liturgy at the Church of the Holy Family in Aurora, Colorado on Sept. 5th, 2009. See post on Sept. 7th for my article.
