Rev. Alexandra Dyer

Roman Catholic Womenpriests (RCWP) and Women’s Ordination Conference (WOC) are deeply saddened by the violent attack that Alexandra Dyer, a Roman Catholic Womanpriest in New York City, experienced when leaving work on Wednesday evening.  As she was getting in her car, a man approached Alexandra and threw a caustic substance in her face resulting in severe burns.

At this point, we believe this horrific attack to be unrelated to her being a Roman Catholic Womanpriest. Nonetheless, our community has been shaken by this senseless, devastating act of violence.

Alexandra is currently hospitalized and will have a long and difficult recovery.  We ask for your prayers for Alexandra and all those who will be walking with her on her long road of recovery.
A friend has set up a Go Fund Me account for her to assist with any recovery costs. We know she will appreciate any gesture of support during this difficult time.
