.- The Archdiocese of Chicago recently stated that a woman, “ordained” by the group “Roman Catholic Womenpriests,” will not be buried in a Catholic cemetery due to her deliberate separation from the Catholic Church.

According to a Chicago Public Radio report, Janine Denomme passed away five weeks after her “priestly ordination” by Roman Catholic Womenpriests.  In 2008, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith declared that any woman attempting priestly ordination would automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Due to her willing refusal of Catholic teaching, the Archdiocese of Chicago has said that Denomme will not have a Catholic funeral or be buried in a Catholic cemetery.

The gay-friendly Windy City Times reported that Denomme always was active in the Church, working with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and teaching at Chicago's St. Scholastica High School and DePaul University. She was also a partnered lesbian.

The schismatic group Roman Catholic Womenpriests also acknowledges on its website that they do not follow all teachings of the Church: “Yes, we have challenged and broken the Church's Canon Law 1024, an unjust law that discriminates against women.”
