Bishop Bridget Mary Meehan (ARCWP) has issued a brief statement concerning Fr. Illo, the San Francisco priest who has decided to reverse his parish's longstanding policy and bar the use of altar-girls.
The barring of altar girls by a priest in San Francisco California is another example of blatent sexism in the Catholic Church. I believe that altar Girls today will become vibrant future priests! The God who calls is calling women to be priests today! Contrary to Fr. Illo, the catholic priesthood is not a male charism as there are over 200 women in the global Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement.
