Wanda Russell and Miriam Picconi, of Palm Coast, will travel Saturday, April 2, to Sarasota, to become ordained as Roman Catholic women deacons as part of the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests movement, which began with the ordination of seven women, in 2002, and has grown to more than 124 worldwide...We love the church, but there has become so many injustices for women in general,” Russell said.Picconi added: “I’m not trying to be rebellious; I’m just trying to respond to God’s invitation. I want to stand with other women who say this is wrong and to stand for equality in a community and discipleship of equals.” “I’m looking forward to see what God has in store for us,” Russell said. “I’m taking the step on faith that God is not finished with us yet.” www.associationofromancatholicwomenpriests.org
