Region for the Holy Margins, as a member region of Roman Catholic Womenpriest-USA, Inc. We maintain alliance with other feminist, faith-filled, non-profit organizations, who support and work on behalf of women in a variety of ways including:

Our Commitment to
Social Justice

The Region for the Holy Margins recognizes that the movement for the ordination of women and peoples of all genders is based on the Holy Spirit's call  to all, not just men, and  it is also  more than being ordained.  

Ordination is one step in creating a renewed church and world where people of all genders and ethnicities are fully dignified. In our region this work includes focusing on anti-racism work, supporting immigrants, lifting up the rights of the LGBTQ advocacy and more.
