Stepping Forward into Priesthood | Institutional religion that denies women’s gifts for leadership is reaching a point of no return. Perhaps those who care about that need to take a step.

Diane, a life-long Catholic, was the first woman in Washington State to be ordained as a Roman Catholic Womanpriest in May of 2010. She serves Holy Wisdom Inclusive Catholic Community in Olympia and Lacey, WA.
