GALAS Event: BRIDEGROOM Screening

BridegroomPotluck – Movie – Discussion

Sunday, August 24
12:30PM to 3PM
All Saints Forum

Join us for lunch and an award-winning documentary. This poignant and enraging true story opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will. An accidental death leads to a loving and committed partner finding himself completely shut out and ostracized without legal recourse.

Discussion following will be let by a lawyer who will educate us so we don’t find ourselves in a similar situation.

RSVP not required; Email galas@allsaints-pas.org for info.

“In the image of God, God created them; male and female God created them.” I was seven years old when the Philadelphia Eleven were ordained. I don’t remember the moment, but I remember the years of discussion, debate, and difficulty that followed as I grew up…

 

Ann GillespieAnn Gillespie

All Saints, Pasadena is the nest from which I flew. It was in the particular and savory alchemy of music, social justice, and transformational preaching that my own call to priesthood was born, nurtured by so many incredible women (and a few men!)…

 

Ann Van DervoortAnn Ver Dervoort

After living in two states where I was told, and not necessarily politely, that I was not wanted or needed in “that” diocese, even with a seminary degree from Vanderbilt Divinity School, a dear friend introduced me to Bishop Fred Borsch at a meeting in Chicago…

“What are you doing with the rest of your life?” When George Regas asked me that back in 1979, he rocked my world. I was a green young newspaper reporter, and I’d just written a series of stories about the nuclear weapons conference…

 

Carissa Baldwin McGinnisCarissa Baldwin-McGinnis

After my ordination rite to the Transitional Diaconate, my family shared a laugh in my direction. During my vows I had become tongue-tied over the language about submission to authority. I was the third woman in my family to receive a seminary degree…

Not long ago, Sr. Simone Campbell of Nuns on the Bus told Rachel Maddow that despite an inquisition and resistance to change, ‘the Holy Spirit is alive and well and making mischief.’ She could have been talking about life at All Saints…

 

Janine SchenoneJanine Schenone

I remember very well the night I watched the news with my father, and the newscaster said that the Episcopal Church had voted to ordain women as priests. At the time, I was a young teenager in a Roman Catholic family, a girl who always wondered why I couldn’t be an altar server…

George Regas. All Saints, Pasadena.
Ordination. Woman priest.
First in line. February 11, 1979.
Huston Horn, Dick Gillette, Doug Vest, Mary Regas, Anne Peterson, Bishop Rusack, cast of thousands…

The priest hadn’t yet arrived. Traffic, they said, stalling for a moment. So we sat there waiting, chatting about the busy-ness of the spring – parties to organize, graduation dinners to host, summer plans to put in place, college explorations ahead…

George Regas looked at me sadly, shaking his head as he said, “You know, Maggie, there are an awful lot of women your age looking to be ordained,” to which I replied truthfully but rather disrespectfully, “And there are an awful lot of men your age who are already ordained”…

 

Sally HowardSally Howard

The ink is barely dry on my ordination certificate, having just been ordained in January 2014, and as I write this, I am aware of some of the gutsy, amazing women in my life that infused my horizon with possibility and lit enthusiasm in my belly…

 

Shannon KellyShannon Kelly

I do not remember a time when women were not ordained. I grew up in a diocese where the Canon to the Ordinary was a female priest. I grew up surrounded by women in leadership in the church. It was not until I was in high school that I truly appreciated what all of that meant…

 

Susan RussellSusan Russell

I grew up in the Episcopal Church when girls couldn’t be acolytes — much less end up being priests. I remember the arguments about the ordination of women in the 70’s — but at that point I was in college and my church attendance was (to put it generously) “sporadic”…

I came to the USA and Pasadena to go to Fuller Seminary. On my second Sunday in Pasadena, I walked into All Saints Church on Homecoming Sunday. When I saw that there were two women priests on staff and a multiplicity of social justice projects, I knew that I had come home…

Marie Moorefield was one of the Philadelphia 11 and also Canon to the Ordinary and Deployment for the Diocese of North Carolina, while I was there. However, I had no clue as to who she was because Marie didn’t use her maiden name…
