Community Meeting Tonight, Contemplative Mass Saturday

A biting and timely editorial...

Open letter to the US Catholic bishops: It's over

Open places to pray on election day:

Great workshop this Friday and Saturday on the women of Luke, co-sponsored by HW. And don't forget: Contemplative Mass on Saturday is at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.

A bold faced name of centering prayer and inspiration for many in the HW community, Thomas Keating is dead at 95.

Roman Catholic Women Priests mourn the victims of Saturday's horrific violence at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. We offer our deepest condolences and prayers to the victims and their families, both to those who lost their lives and were injured including members of the Jewish community and first responders. We commit ourselves to working for unity among all people of the United States. We, as a nation, are better than the divisive rhetoric filling our airwaves. As Christians, we have a moral obligation to care for all, especially the most threatened.

Roman Catholic Women Priests focuses on the renewal of the Catholic Church through the inclusion of the marginalized, by ordaining women to the priesthood. RCWP-USA condemns the divisive atmosphere created by the present administration, whereby entire races and faiths are labeled as enemies. We disagree with those who suggest that armed security for schools and houses of worship forms a solution.

We call on the leaders of our nation to end speech which divides Americans and enact laws which ban assault rifles and keep all firearms out of the hands of those who would threaten the innocent.
