Women in the church

Catholic San Francisco posted on Pope Francis saying, “I am convinced at the urgency of offering space to women in the life of the church ...” (Feb. 13, Page 11).

On his recent arrival at Star of the Sea, Father Illo was to receive national attention by his urgent denial of a few young women to serve on the altar. He and his supporters must be missing Pope Francis’ memos. A few young girls are excluded at Star of the Sea while, nationally, millions of young women are leaving church identity.

The writers are parishioners of St Boniface Parish, San Francisco and former directors of Family Life Ministries in the archdiocese.
