The "Gals", plus Friend of "Women Priests" in Oregon Finally Dismissed from Priesthood.

 Here is some information on the four "womenpriests" we have in Oregon.  This was written in 2012 and never posted until now in 2013. 
Ex-Father Roy Bourgeois finally.   Roy Bourgeois went to Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon member churches to speak.  People from the Archdiocese were seen in the audience. 

Please read the link for info.  He's still around.  The gals love him in his disobedience.  Like him, they have found their niche in it.

Below is information on Toni Tortorilla the first "womenpriest" in Oregon and a friend of the Archdiocese of Portland.  She started a group called "Sophia Christi" a "church with women officiating at baptisms, weddings, confession and worst of all "communion". 

All of these "sacraments" are null and void. 

Toni and friends are probably very nice and fit in with the "old guard" that are still with Archbishop Sample. 

We pray that this influence does not travel far.

Name: Toni Tortorilla, M.Div.

The "ordination of two women" was in an EMO church and one of their "Member Congregations" is the Metropolitan Community Church: a homosexual church. What in the world is this bankrupt Archdiocese doing?

Hi Carolyn!

I was reading through this, but I am not sure if I am missing something "new" that has happened in Portland that you are trying to alert us to? Or are you just reminding us of these things? Remember that we need to be patient with our new shepherd, he has a lot to correct in our archdiocese.

VOCAL said...

The "new" thing is that we are still with Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. I know our good Archbishop knows Oregon needs help and he's starting on the music end of this which is great.

There is still a group of those around him that don't agree with the Church's teachings on non-negotiable things.

Patience is a virtue and in this I pray I am.

For ten years I've been learning more and more how entrenched the EMO churches are in undermining our Faith.

As a convert I'm a little more amazed why this is allowed.

Eventually things will change and things haven't yet. Thus the reminder of EMO and friends.

I thought the Toni and Ruth show was put behind us?? UMM.. I wonder if the Archbishop is aware of these atrociies and if they are still occurring.... and also how much Mary Jo is involved??? A Faithful Knight

VOCAL said...

I don't know if the Archbishop is aware of this. He might be giving so many of the old guard time to change. They seemed to have become more quiet, but as with the Office of Justice and Peace...somethings never change.

VOCAL said...

Forgot to add. No, they are not behind us. They are still doing heretical things to split the Church.

We need the Archbishop to someday address this so they can understand that women will never become authentic priests. If the laity gets self-education by some early teachings, and praying for the Lord's wisdom in this. He will be faithful.
