The site says it all.:shrug:
Rev. Joe Rowley is Jessica’s husband and a pastor at Parkway United Church of Christ in Town and Country.
At present, Rowley serves as an Associate Pastor at Sts. Claire and Francis in Webster Groves. Many of her estimated 90 parishioners cannot receive communion in their former churches because they are divorced, remarried, gay or lesbian. Others said they joined Sts. Claire and Francis because they were searching for a new sense of spirituality.
Rev. Rowley does not belong to the organization called Roman Catholic Womenpriests. Last year, Rose Marie Hudson and Elsie McGrath were ordained in St. Louis and quickly excommunicated by Archbishop Raymond Burke.“This is different because this individual clearly belongs to a community separate from the Catholic Church,” said Lawrence Welch, the religious affairs spokesperson for the St. Louis Archdiocese. “What is different about last year is these women were claiming incorrectly and falsely they could somehow be catholic and participate in worship outside of the church.”
They have plans to baptize the boy in both churches. :eek:
