Pittsburgh Celebrates July – Women’s Ordination Month

The Kick-off event will be held on June 29, 2012.

We Remember and We Celebrate!

On June 29, 2002, the first ordination of Roman Catholic Womenpriests took place on the Danube River in Europe. Roman Catholic bishops ordained these first seven women priests after forty years of struggle, advocacy and petitioning of the Vatican for women’s ordination by women and men worldwide.

This year we will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of that historical day here in Pittsburgh (PA) with the June 29th showing of the award-winning documentary, Pink Smoke Over the Vatican, at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont. Producer, Jules Hart, of California will join me for a lively discussion following the film. We invite you to come with your comments and questions, and celebrate with us. For details on this showing and for other events, see my “Friends of Women’s Ordination” page on this web site.
