On Tuesday January 30, 2018, the two NYS Chapters of Call to Action joined a coalition of advocates to hold a press conference outside the NYS Senate chambers in Albany in support of the Child Victim’s Act.
. This event was given broad TV coverage: http://wnyt.com/politics/survivors-of-child-sexual-abuse-call-for-statue-of-limitation-extension-albany/4765159/?cat=10114
Later in the day members of the coalition provided testimony in support of passage of the Child Victim’s Act to the joint legislative hearings on the Public Safety Budget. This involved a semi-heroic effort since all state agency testimony for the budget preceded items such as the CVA. Our speakers were called to present a little after 10:00pm.
We invite you and your friends to a Eucharistic Celebration in honor of Mary Magdalene. Our celebrant will be Fr. John Kirwin. Please call Joan Horgan with questions and to volunteer. She may be reached at the Hubbard Sanctuary at email@example.com or call 518-454-5296.

It seems like the Catholic Hierarchy can motor on indefinitely without any observable recognition of women in the Church. We might say the very same things about all baptized in this Church. In spite of Vatican II, in spite of everything learned from history, in spite of our understanding of human development the Church continues to cast a blind eye toward women as anything but silent partners in the governing of the Roman Catholic Church to say nothing of the overwhelming need for a pastoral presence for those in need.
Join us this Saturday am at the Cathedral for a Witness for Women as we stand for inclusion of all the baptized in the working and manifestation of the Roman Catholic Church. We have done this before and we will persist in making a public statement in the only way open to us, by offering our witness to the fact that women should be ordained in our Church.
Join us on Saturday at 10:00am in front of the Cathedral. Bring a sign able to be seen from a distance. We will be present from 10:00 am till 11:00 when the Ordination will begin. We have some signs for people.
Please let Bill and Ellen Halligan know if you can join us. Call them at 518- 462-2299. Or send a quick message to them at firstname.lastname@example.org
