Irish Roman Catholic Bishop Signals Openness on Women Priests, How About a Cup of Tea and a Conversation in August?

Bishop of Derry Donal McKeown has signalled an openness to women priests, though insisted that there is no possibility of women being ordained “at the present time”
On the issue of women priests, he said: “If that’s God’s will in our day, I’m happy to accept it.” However, he added that “there is no possibility at the present time women will be priests”.

Bridget Mary's Response: Three members of the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests will be in Ireland in August. I wonder if we could have a cup of tea and a conversation with Bishop McKeown.
