On November 19, 2012, Roy Bourgeois learned he had been expelled from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, his religious order and faith community for 46 years, and that the Vatican had revoked his priesthood – all for his refusal to be silent about his support for women’s ordination.
Support for Bourgeois is pouring in – from other countries, including an association of Irish priests , and from throughout the United States, including some Maryknoll members . The National Catholic Reporter is an excellent resource for following this developing story.
Roy was interviewed by CBC Radio's Anna Maria Tremonti, for her Line in the Sand: Dilemmas that Define Us series. It aired on December 19, 2012, and is available at: this link
