SPECIAL REPORT: Families Separated at the Border
Charity Sr. Louise Akers came to national prominence in 2009, when Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk ordered her to publicly renounce her support for women's ordination.
Nearly 100 women, men and children gathered Jan. 21 in New York's Union Square for a prayer service, a march to a nearby parish and a Mass to celebrate "the power of feminist activism and sacrament."
Catholics and Catholic reform groups were among the hundreds of thousands who turned out on the streets throughout the nation for the second annual Women's March.
Inspired by the Women's March and initiated at an NYC parish, organizers plan an interfaith blessing, march and Mass Jan. 21 — and are offering resources for others to join them.
