Be the change you want to see in the Catholic Church.

Come celebrate the Eucharist at an inclusive Mass in the DC-area led by a Roman Catholic woman priest. The Masses are organized by some DC-area friends, families, and neighbors as part of WHIMM (Washington Home Inclusive Monthly Mass), a Roman Catholic movement begun in February 2019 to help renew the Church by experiencing a new model of ordained ministry. Once a month, we hold a home Mass led by a Roman Catholic Woman Priest from the Baltimore-Annapolis-Washington area’s Living Water Inclusive Catholic Community. The hope is to build something better so we can see it and flourish in it. The gatherings are inclusive, and all are welcome at the table to celebrate God’s creation.

Break bread with one of over 250 Catholic women around the world who have become priests as part of an underground Catholic movement launched in 2002, with the secret ordination of seven women on the Danube River in Germany (conducted by a male bishop). There are now eight Roman Catholic women priests in the DC-Baltimore-Annapolis region alone, who are holding weekly Masses for a growing community of Catholics seeking to live into the radical vision that Jesus calls us to, in unity with all God’s creation. These ordained women are following their vocation--for many a call they have heard since childhood--in an act of prophetic obedience.

“Behold, I am making something new.” (Isaiah 43:19) Be a part of history by witnessing the simple goodness of inclusive Catholic ordination.
