Ireland - active since 1993

Ireland!I want to put on record how grateful we are to you and all the Housetop team for the excellent resource you have provided for the world with your website www.womenpriests.org. Whether one is a young school pupil, a university researcher or a member of Cardinal Ratzinger’s staff, the first place to seek authoritative information on the issue of women priests is on your website! Your website provides good summary information for the arguments both for and against, as well as the fruit of your extensive years of research. And there are many megabytes of original texts and documents available, some in their original Latin versions! A unique feature of the website is the section on women with a sense of calling to the ordained ministries. An added benefit for non-English speakers is that the website offers translations in many different languages. You have set a high standard for including texts and articles on your website and this is another reason for its fame and popularity. Finally, your website is always growing and expanding, thanks to the tireless efforts of your team at Housetop.

South Africa - active since 1996

South Africa!We very much appreciate the www.womenpriests.org website. We are a women's ordination organization in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Most of our members do not have computers, or even access to the Internet. We therefore use the womenpriests' website extensively in our local Newsletter WOSA (Women's Ordination South Africa) -- to share its valuable information as widely as possible!

OCW website!

USA - active since 1977

Addresses in the USA!Www.womenpriests.org has become a unique resource for our movement and for all who promote the ordination of women. You have made classic texts accessible to all which could only be consulted in libraries. You rally international scholarship in support of our cause. You prove the cultural prejudice of past theology by irrefutable documentation. You are both academically reliable and pastorally sensitive. You reach out to many countries through English, Spanish and other major languages.
