Dear Women’s Ordination Conference Supporter,

Exciting news! The call for women's equality in the Catholic Church is reverberating loudly in the public consciousness. I am pleased to report that this morning in a historic move, the National Catholic Reporter (NCR), a leading source of independent journalism on Catholic interest news, announced its public endorsement of women's ordination in Roman Catholic Church.

Please take a moment to thank NCR staff for being a prophetic voice and standing with the majority of Catholics in the U.S. and around the globe who believe women should be ordained as priests.

Advent blessings,

Erin Saiz Hann, Executive Director

Barring women from ordination to the priesthood is an injustice that cannot be allowed to stand.
