Patricia Fresen, D.Th., RCWP
Less Pope, More Jesus
This quotation from Hans Küng expresses well the vision of the many reform groups in the church: the end of medieval clericalism, hierarchical authoritarianism, restorationism and misogyny. Priestly identity and parish structures are being reshaped as we work for a renewed Church that follows Jesus more closely. 'Justice rising'.
A former Dominican Sister born and raised in South Africa, Patricia studied theology in Rome. A member of Roman Catholic Women Priests, Patricia had to leave the Dominicans when she was ordained. She was largely responsible for establishing RCWP in North America and is still active within RCWP in Europe.
