The Philadelphia Eleven Online Premiere

A new documentary about the Philadelphia Eleven will premiere online on March 8 at 7 pm Central, in honor of International Women’s Day.

The film tells the story of eleven women ordained Episcopal priests on July 29, 1974 at Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia, two years before the ordination of women was approved by General Convention. A panel discussion will follow the online screening, featuring the Rev. Dr. Carter Heyward and the Rev. Nancy Wittig, two of the eleven, as well as Bishop Nedi Rivera, the first Hispanic woman to be ordained a bishop, and filmmaker Margo Guernsey.
