Fr. Jerry Zawada, who is part of the local province of Franciscan Friars concelebrated mass with a woman priest November 19th at the School of Americas protest. Zawada concelebrated with Janice Sevre-Duzynska, who coincidentally, was the woman whose ordination Fr. Roy Bourgeois witnessed. On November 29, Zawada met with his Provincial Minister to discuss the matter. At this time, no action is being taken by his order. No action has been taken YET by the Vatican.
Zawada is firm in his belief that the ordination of women is a justice issue in the Catholic Church and is prepared to receive whatever punishment may be handed down. Nevertheless, he will not recant his action and will not willingly leave the Church that he loves.
Zawada is a long time peace activist who has gone to jail on a number of occasions. Thank you Fr. Jerry for your courageous witness. You are a true priest - a mediator of God's will to God's people.
A Faithful Catholic
