Women feel left out in today’s church

The Editor: Joan Chittister wrote an excellent article in the Nov 18 Prairie Messenger.

I appreciate and applaud her courage in stating what is so obvious to many women in the church. Things need to change so women have a place in our male-dominated church. The ironic thing is that when you look around the congregation the majority are women.  

We have seen that many of the younger women are no longer part of our parishes. There is nothing there that attracts or encourages them. It is the same older women who carry on the activities in the parish. 

Now in some smaller parishes more and more of the middle aged women are no longer present.  Is it any wonder that they look elsewhere for spiritual nourishment? — Leona Donnan, Tisdale, Sask.
