Roman Catholic Womenpriests consider themselves within the Roman Catholic Church though the movement itself is at odds with the Vatican. “We are a movement that fights for the injustice in the church that prevents women and married men from being ordained,” said Jim Lauder, who in 2008 became the first man ordained in the international movement. About 21 people are involved in the local community, which meets at 11 a.m. on the fourth Sunday of every month in the reception centre at McCall’s Bros. Funeral Home, 1400 Vancouver St. For more info, call 250-519-0055.
