Kentucky diocese excommunicates female "priest" from Milwaukee

A Milwaukee native, ordained in 2008 through the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, has been excommunicated by the Catholic Diocese of Lexington, Ky.

The diocese issued the decree of excommunication against the Rev. Janice Sevre-Duszynska of Lexington on March 31, saying she failed to amend or repent her offense after two earlier warnings. Excommunication bars a Catholic from taking part in the church's sacraments.

Efforts to reach the diocese were not successful on Tuesday.

Sevre-Duszynska said the diocese's action is inconsistent with Pope Francis call in March for a holy year of mercy.

I like how Annysa refers to her as "Rev."  I wonder if a female deacon is then referred to as "Rev. Mr."?

Sevre-Duszynska was excommunicated years ago, the article from NCReporter is from 2009.  Maybe there is some new public statement from the Diocese of Lexington but it is not linked to and is old news.

  1. Excommunication is an act of mercy. It is a plea to repent and rejoin the flock.
