On Sunday, August 5th, we will celebrate an inclusive Mass/Liturgy at 10:00am at St. Andrew Community Center in Rialto, Dublin where all are welcome to receive Eucharist.
Jesus treated everyone with equal respect, so should the hierarchy of the Catholic Church and the planners of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin.
Pope Francis talks about the importance of social justice for the poor and marginalized, but, he fails to make the connection that two-thirds of the world's poor are women and their dependent children.
The institutional Church's teaching prohibiting artificial birth control and excluding women as priests and equals in decision making in the top jobs plays a major role in this social inequity. There is no avoiding the elephant in the living room. The full equality of women and LGBTQI is the voice of God in our times.
The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests prepares and ordains women called to a new vision of church as a community of equals where all are welcome. We look forward to ordaining women called to partnership and inclusivity, and invite all who embrace this vision to become Friends of the Association.
