Sign the petition to support Fr. Roy

 |  NCR Today

As you've been reading in NCR, Fr. Roy Bourgeois has been given his second warning to recant his support of women's ordination.

In an effort to support Fr. Roy, the Women's Ordination Conference has created an online petition. They have already collected 9,000 signatures. Their goal is to reach 10,000 signatures by tomorrow night.

In a letter to his Maryknoll brothers responding to this second warning, Fr. Roy wrote, "As you know, I am not a lone voice crying out in the wilderness for the ordination of women."
