Women Protest for Ordination Near Vatican; Want "Full and Equal" Sharing in RC Church

The Ecumenical News International website reports today (June 10, 2010) that a group of women demonstrated this week in Rome's St. Peter's Square, calling for women's ordination.

The women said they want "full and equal" participation in the Roman Catholic Church.

The small group held a banner stating, "Ordain Catholic Women," in the Via della Conciliazione -- the boulevard that leads to the square -- before they were told to move by police.

"Our church urgently needs large numbers of male and female pastors to serve our parishes. Charisma should be important, not gender," said Angelika Fromm, a German representative from the International Movement We are Church.
