March Through London Celebrates 20 Years of Female Clergy in Church of England

Yesterday, in celebration of 20 years of ordained ministry for women in the Church of England, hundreds of priests gathered and marched from Westminster Abbey to St. Paul’s Cathedral in London:

“The whole pub – not just the Church people – cheered like mad,” he said.

The Reverend Claire Herbert, lecturer in inclusive theology at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, was one of the first women to be ordained…

“For most of us it has completely changed our lives,” she said.

“It’s so fantastic to be surrounded by women because we usually don’t see each other all that much.

“You also realise how many of us there are.”
