Run away! Run away! Here come female priests. NewsFlash - Catholic women face excommunication: "The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joan Houk has ministered to the sick and needy, run two Roman Catholic parishes that were without priests and has presided over baptisms and funerals. Her calling now, she says, is to be a priest.

Houk will be one of a dozen women participating in a ceremony Monday in which eight will proclaim themselves priests and four deacons. The ceremony won't be recognized by the Catholic church, which has a 2,000-year tradition of an all-male priesthood."
This might be just what the church needs.
