An Invitation to Support Renewal, Inclusivity, and Re-Imagining of the Church through
Roman Catholic Womenpriests-USA

You are invited to become one of a growing number of supporters of Roman Catholic Womenpriests (RCWP-USA, Inc.), a 501(c)3 non-profit religious organization whose mission is to bring about the full equality of women in the Roman Catholic Church while creating a new model of Priestly Ministry.

Roman Catholic Womenpriests-USA does not perceive itself as a counter-current movement against the Roman Catholic Church. It wants neither a schism nor a break from the Roman Catholic Church, but rather wants to work positively within the Church.

Your tax free contribution will help to nourish our growth and sustain our development in the following ways:

  • Preparing candidates for ordination
  • Underwriting ordination events and activities
  • Assisting candidates with related ordination costs, based on need
  • Developing ministerial, educational, social justice and outreach programs
  • Producing publications and educational materials
  • Providing financial start-up support for the various ministries
    of our ordained Womenpriests/deacons
  • Maintaining our website:

If you are unable to offer financial support at this time please remember Roman Catholic Womenpriests in your prayers. Thank you.


Dear Friends of Roman Catholic Womenpriest-USA,

RCWP-USA held our first national council in July 2017. The majority of our members were able to gather face-to-face;  others via live streaming. We explored and celebrated our strong roots, diversity, and common call to renew our Church by ordaining to the priesthood those called and qualified.

I expect most of you know that Roman Catholic Womenpriests pay for their own education, they establish and build worshipping communities and they minister to the marginalized. They volunteer in their local communities' charities and in RCWP itself. Some priests are 'retired' from careers; while other priests work full-time as nurses, psychologists, teachers, physicians' assistants and more. All RCWP minister full or part time as deacons and priests.

On a recent Facebook post, highlighting the ordination of two Western Region bishops, a supporter noted too many grey heads in photos. A young deacon offered the best explanation--ECONOMICS! She pointed out that, " We are losing many skilled, young Catholic women to other denominations that will financially support their work as ministers." RCWP-USA recognizes the financial hardship that befalls all Catholic women when they pursue their call to priesthood.

Please support us:

1. Donate to RCWP-USA, so we can provide more financial support to young candidates,  deacons and priests.

2. Reach out to RCWP communities in your region and offer tuition assistance directly to young women in the process of preparation and discernment.

3. Invite young RCWP candidates, deacons and priests to preach, preside and speak in your faith sharing group or religious community so RCWP might gain more visibility.
Your gift at this time helps us subsidize our program of preparation, some education costs, retreats and gatherings that energize our mission and our new Action Network, focusing on issues of justice.

Peace and many thanks,

Martha Sherman
President, Board of Directors' Circle
