Fifty Years Ago... On July 29, 1974, eleven women were ordained as priests in Philadelphia, in violation of the constitution and canons of The Episcopal Church at that time. These first female priests in The Episcopal Church were harassed, lost friends, and banned from stepping on church property. The Philadelphia Eleven documentary, released this year in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of their ordinations, showcases their courage to effect change and build a movement that is still transforming the Church today. The Diocese of Easton is offering an opportunity to view and discuss this important film.

Thirty-Five Years Ago… on June 3,1989 the Rev. Marianne Ell become the first woman ordained in the Diocese of Easton – to the Diaconate at Trinity Cathedral and on January 6, 1990 to the Priesthood at Christ Church Easton. You can read more about Marianne Ell’s journey in this article published on the 30th anniversary of her ordination.

We are excited to have Rev. Marianne Ell facilitate a 30-minute discussion after the Philadelphia Eleven Screening.  We hope you can all join us on Sunday, July 28th, at 4:00pm at Easton Premier Cinemas in Easton, MD
