Catholic Church reformer speaking in Fairbanks and Anchorage

A national Catholic Church reform leader is visiting Alaska. Sister Christine Schenk is the director of Future Church. She says the Ohio-based coalition is dedicated to stemming a decline in the number of Catholic priests by loosening church rules. The role of women in Christianity will be the subject of talks Schenk is giving in Fairbanks Saturday and in Anchorage on Sunday. Her visit to Alaska is sponsored by the Alaska chapter of the Catholic reform group “Call to Action.”
