Catholics Urged to Boycott Mass This Sunday

September 22, 2010

A Cork woman is calling on all Catholics to boycott Mass this Sunday. Jennifer Sleeman says the time has come for women to be allowed to become priests.

Jennifer Sleeman (80), from Clonakilty, Co Cork, also says groups in the US, Canada and Australia are joining her boycott with special events.

This includes the influential US lobby group, Women's Ordination Worldwide (WOW), has also backed her protest which is due to be held this coming Sunday, September 26.

Ms Sleeman said she had received just three "nasty letters" since going public with her Mass boycott plan last month.

"I have received so many other letters and phone calls from people who understand and support what I am trying to do," she said.
