Aline attended the ordination of two women as priests of the Roman Catholic Church November 11 at the Central Reform Congregation.   Although this is a controversial event for the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, and is not considered by many to be a valid ordination, the presiding Bishop, Patricia Fresen, explained that her own ordination and that of dozens of other women over the past two years were performed by male bishops under proper Catholic procedure and “apostolic succession,” linking the women to priests and bishops and popes before them.  The clergy of a number of denominations were present to celebrate the event.
