Pastoral Associate Attends Mock Ordination of Women

And praises it!

Confusion reigns...Diocese of Syracuse

From In Protest of Catholic Policy, Women Ordained Priests --

"It's time that changed, said Sister Patricia Bergan, a member of the women's religious community the Sisters of St. Francis and an administrator at St. Andrew the Apostle Church in Syracuse, N.Y.

When Bergan, Cathy Gregory, and Meme Woolever, all of Syracuse, heard about the event, they decided to drive to the eastern Ontario town to see if they could participate. After waiting in the hot sun on the pier for more than an hour, they were allowed on the boat.

'This is great,' Bergan said. 'It's history.' "
