“I never dared to think that it would be possible to manage in a movement, the RCWP, and with the support of a community, Mary Magdalene, which completely affirms my identity. I am very excited about future opportunities to be a pastor at the intersection of faith, sexuality, and gender.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) It’s difficult to make much sense of what actually just happened here and it’s also unclear just by looking as to whether this “non-binary transgender” person is actually a male or a female, but at least one report says she was born as a woman….
One thing is clear, however, is that this “non-binary transgender” person is the first in the U.S. to be ordained as a priestess in the Catholic Church by the Roman Catholic Womenpriests.
Kori Pacyniak was recently ordained as a “priestess” at the Mary Magdeline Apostle Catholic Community — a Catholic Church in San Diego, CA. She has been a member of the “pastoral” team since January of 2017 and according to her bio, received her Master of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School and is also currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at the University of California at Riverside, focusing on Queer and Trans Studies in Religion.
