The Western Region
Roman Catholic Womenpriests in the Western part of the USA are at the forefront of a model of service that offers the people of God a renewed priestly ministry in vibrant grassroots communities where all are equal and all are welcome. They are part of a an international movement known as Roman Catholic Womenpriests which was born on the Danube River in Germany with the ordination to the priesthood of seven bold women in 2002. Our mission is to prepare, ordain in apostolic succession, and support primarily women who are called by the Holy Spirit and their communities to a renewed priestly ministry rooted in social justice and faithfulness to the Gospel.
