Today

Today is the 24th of January. On this date in 1944, Rev. Florence Li Tim Oi became the first (and for some years only) woman ordained to Anglican priesthood. Her life and ministry is remembered in Holy Women - Holy Men, part of the Episcopal Church's calendar of It saints and the Canadian Book of Alternate Services. She is also misrepresented in "The Windsor Report." There is a website dedicated to her at this site.

She was an amazing pioneer, who should be celebrated more widely. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
