Inför vigningen i Boston
Fick en artikel om en av de kvinnor som kommer att prästvigas i Boston snart.

Hon har tidigare skrivit detta inlägg i bloggen om sin tjänst bland de hemlösa i "Lejonparken".

"Lee said the group is breaking in good conscience a rule that they say discriminates against women.

"As Rosa Parks did when she sat on the bus," Lee said, "we are sitting on the bus."

Lee said she was raised a Methodist but converted to Catholicism in 1991.

In 1998, she worked at Florida Gulf Coast University and helped to develop the master's of social work program. She holds a doctorate of ministry degree and a doctorate in social welfare.

Lee said she has a twinge of sadness about not being recognized by the Catholic Church. She said she is "praying the church will open their eyes and their ears."

Lee's Church in the Park ministry hold services every Friday night in Fort Myers' Lions Park.

She said the church offers food, clothing and counseling to more than 100 members, the majority of the congregation being homeless.

The Rev. Walter Fohs of Lamb of God Church in Estero said Lee more than deserves the ordination. Lamb of God holds joint services with Lee's congregation.

"She is tireless in her work at Church in the Park," Fohs said.

He said the ordination is also vital to the Catholic community as "a necessary sign of the future of the church."

Fohs said, without criticism of the Catholic Church, that a Christian ministry "has to be inclusive and speak to a wider population.""

    Kraxpelax,

    Nej, låt oss be för kyrkans hierarki att de kommer till insikt om sin villfarelse och omvänder sig....

    :-)
