Letters to the Editor

Women and the Church

Dear Editor: To people who feel that women have no place in the church as altar servers or lectors (“No Fan of Latin Mass,” Readers’ Forum, Feb. 19) and feel that this may have caused the dwindling attendance, might I suggest that the decline in attendance can also possible be caused by the change in demographics in the church.

I have a daughter who is a lector and a Eucharistic Minister. She is also a former altar server and we are very proud of her.

Since some people feel that the Church is predominately for men, perhaps more families should encourage their sons to become priests – it would help in revitalizing the Church.
