On the Danube River in June 2002, seven women were ordained into the Roman Catholic priesthood by a valid Roman Catholic Bishop (in apostolic succession). Known as the Danube Seven, these women have inspired the hearts and minds of Catholics around the world to continue to seek justice and equal Rites for women in the Church we love.
On May 12, 2012 – 5 PM the Women’s Ordination Conference and Roman Catholic Women Priests will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Danube 7 in Cleveland, OH. Dagmar Celeste, the only North American in the Danube Seven, and the first U.S. Roman Catholic Womenpriest will be our guest of honor. The celebration will begin with Mass at 5:00 PM. Reception immediately following with a silent auction, light buffet, and tributes. To reserve tickets or to get more information contact: Alan D. Klonowski, WOC Board Member [email protected] or 216.334.4021.
