Vigils in support of Bourgeois

 |  NCR Today

Demonstrations and vigils in support of Fr. Roy Bourgeois, the Maryknoll priest who faces dismissal from his order and laicization by the Vatican for his support of women's ordination, occurred outside of cathedrals and churches in at least six U.S. cities last week: Buffalo, N.Y.; Chicago; San Diego; Madison, Wis.; Syracuse, N.Y.; and Venice, Fla.

The vigils were co-sponsored by the groups Call to Action, Women's Ordination Conference and Roman Catholic Womenpriests.

Demonstrations were planned for nine other cities: Dallas; Milwaukee; Los Angeles; Columbus, Ohio; Philadelphia; Portland, Maine; Lansing, Mich.; Detroit; and St. Petersburg, Fla.
