In support of Father Roy Bourgeois
Dear Supporter of the Peace and Justice Movement,
Father Roy Bourgeois has been given 15 days to recant his public support of Women's Ordination or be dismissed from Maryknoll. Now is the time to stand in solidarity with Roy and equal rights for woman.
We are outraged at Maryknoll's use of the term "scandal" when referring to Father Roy. How can an organization that promotes peace and justice worldwide turn its back on this Viet Nam vet turned Maryknoll priest, who has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is the founder of the School of the America's Watch, and is the epitome of everything we thought Maryknoll stood for?
We encourage the Maryknoll leadership to reflect on this question and examine their consciences as one of their most cherished members, Father Roy Bourgeois, has done: "As priests we say we are called by God. Who are we to say that God would not call a woman?"
Please join us
Please join us for a peaceful Vigil in support of Father Roy and Women's Right to Ordination Sunday August 14 Maryknoll Headquarters, Ossining, NY, starting at 9:30 -- the weekly public Mass at the Chapel begins at 10:30.
