Chicago priest apologizes for public statements on women's ordination
November 15, 2010
A Chicago priest who issued public statements in August and September criticizing Church teaching on the ordination of women has now apologized for those statements and promised to “do my very best to support this Church doctrine.”
Father Larry McNally apologized for “my words and actions that challenged the doctrine” that women cannot be ordained. He reportedly issued the apology in his parish bulletin at the orders of Cardinal Francis George.
