           About Us


Our  Members

The priests and candidates who comprise the Region of the Holy Margins are committed to making the gospel call of justice a reality in our church and our world.  

We persist in our work to become people of justice by studying and discussing relevant current events, supporting the struggle for gender justice in our church and deepening our spiritual commitment through annual retreats and monthly community zoom gatherings. 

The Region for the Holy Margins is a region of Roman Catholic Womenpriests-USA.  The mission of Roman Catholic Women Priests is to prepare, ordain in Apostolic Succession, and support  women  and people of all genders who are called by the Holy Spirit and their communities to a renewed priestly ministry rooted in justice and faithfulness to the Gospel.
