Affirming the Ministry of Women in the Lutheran Church of Australia

Ordination of woman in Independent Catholic Church

Narelle Oliver was ordained on the 22nd November 2009 to the priesthood of the Independent Catholic Church of Australia, and will serve a parish community in Hemmant, Qld. The ICCA is a small denomination that began with a split from the Roman Catholic church in 1870.

Rev Oliver had been a member of Fr Peter Kennedy’s St Mary’s congregation, being drawn there when seeking a truly inclusive church. From there she found the ICCA.

“This is a deeply spiritual journey, not a political statement for me” the Courier-Mail quoted her as saying.
“Rev Oliver said she looked forward to the challenge of building up her parish community as part of a church that had only two doctrines – love God and love your neighbour.”
