Habemus Altare
What I have come across with women, Latinas, is they feel very empowered, The Catholic Church is so male-dominated that they can feel marginalized and relegated to certain duties. That’s not the case here. Women can serve as everything and you do not have that male-female severe line in the sand. So they say, ‘the church means so much to me but it means more to me when I can be welcomed throughout.’
Karla Fernandes, on the Episcopal Church (quoted in “Latinos fueling growth within an Episcopal Church they feel embraces women, gays and immigrants" on NBCLatino)
