ALBANY — Eleven of the country’s 100 women who call themselves and work as Catholic priests will gather in Albany this weekend for the ordination of Mary Theresa Streck into the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.
Streck, who grew up at a church in Loudonville and joined and left a convent, says Catholocism has been her life-long calling and becoming a priest is a fulfillment of her faith.
The ceremony will be performed by a bishop affiliated with the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests. Bridget Mary Meehan was one of the country’s first women priests and denounces the Vatican’s position that this is not a valid ordination.
