MAP: “Sunday Without Women” (Sept. 26) Map of Catholic Women’s Boycott

Are you joining the “Sunday Without Women” on September 26? If you want to be added to the world-wide map, then leave me a comment below with the name and address of the Catholic Church you will not be attending. (Or, if you are google-map savvy, do it yourself here.)
View an updated version of “A Sunday Without Women” Sept. 26, 2010 in a larger map.

What’s it all about? Jennifer Sleeman, an 80-year-old Catholic convert from Clonakilty in Cork, Ireland, is calling on Catholic women to “join your sisters on Sunday, September 26th. On that one day, boycott Mass. Stay at home and pray for change. We are the majority. We may have been protesting individually but unremarked on, but together we have strength and our absence, the empty pews, will be noticed.”

Men are also welcome to participate in the boycott, she said. “It’s not just about Mná na h-Éireann [Women of Ireland]. But it’s for them, because they are frustrated.” This invitation is now being spread to the faithful women of the Catholic church across the world.

    Please add to the map for Day of Action, Sept. 26:

    St. Paul Newman Center, Fresno, CA
    Two of us placed the postcard in the collection box instead of funds. Then, we met another friend at a local bakery where we blessed and shared bread, praying for inclusivity at the table.
