Sisters of Mercy Leadership Saddened by Dismissal of Father Roy Bourgeois

November 28, 2012 – The Institute Leadership Team of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas is saddened and disturbed by the recent action of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to dismiss Father Roy Bourgeois from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers.

We have known and worked with Father Roy as an advocate for justice in both church and society, nationally and globally. Father Roy’s commitment regarding the role of women in the church [emphasis] reflects our own as Sisters of Mercy since our Institute founding in 1991 when we stated in our Direction Statement that we will commit our lives and resources to act in solidarity with women seeking fullness of life and equality in church and society. We have heard Father Roy speak with respect and love for his church and find this an extraordinary moment of deep loss for religious life which he loves and to which he has given faithful service.

Father Roy remains our brother and we thank him for his integrity and lifelong fidelity to the gospel of love, justice and peace.

Mr. Roy Bourgeois was excommunicated and recently dismissed from the Maryknoll Fathers for promoting the ordination of women to the priesthood, and for “concelebrating” the “ordination” of a fake priestess.

The LCWR orders seem unwilling to reform. In fact, they’re growing bolder in their dissent.
