Shatter the Stained Glass Ceiling Tour
new catholic times sensus fidelium
Public Lecture
Join us and participate in breaking the silence on women’s ordination!

Fr. Roy Bourgeois, Maryknoll priest and School of the Americas Watch Founder and Marie Bouclin, Canadian Roman Catholic Womenpriest will speak about their experiences in shattering the stained glass ceiling in the Roman Catholic church regarding the ordination of women.

The event will also host the Toronto premiere of the film, Pink Smoke Over The Vatican by Jules Hart. This film is an award winning documentary film about a group of impassioned women who have stepped forward, with the support of their communities, to challenge the Vatican. This unique group of religious women have chosen at great personal risk to live out their spiritual calling through the forbidden path of ordination. The film follows candidates for priesthood as they confront their inner doubts and anxieties while at the same time challenging the centuries-old established order of one of the most powerful institutions in history.
