Biographical Statements:
Nick De Los Reyes was ordained for the Oblates of Mary Immaculate in 1973 and later married. He and Mary were blessed with six children, who have blessed their parents with six grandchildren (so far). Nick served two terms on the CORPUS board and during this past year served as chair of the Planning Committee. He is inspired by Vatican II and for many decades has been nurtured by its spirit that lives on in CORPUS.

Linda Pinto, a former Franciscan nun, married Ralph, a priest of the Diocese of Newark, New Jersey, in 1975. Shortly thereafter, they found CORPUS. In 1989, Linda was one of the first women appointed to the newly formed Board. She consequently served as CORPUS Member Services for ten years. Eventually, she was elected to the Board and represented CORPUS in Catholic Organizations for Renewal. In 2011, she and Ralph Co-Edited CORPUS REPORTS until December 2016.

Vision Statement:
From its humble beginnings, the essence and energy of CORPUS celebrate three fundamental principles: the primacy of conscience; the sanctity of sexuality; and the full equality of women.

Petition to Reinstate Rev. Roy Bourgeois

Roy Bourgeois 3

PLEASE SEND TO YOUR BISHOP AND ROME

The Corpus Executive Council is very pleased to present this petition for reinstating Rev. Roy Bourgeois — who is being unjustly punished for preaching at a woman’s ordination. He told the Vatican that it was against his conscience to say that he did not believe in the ordination of women. Because Corpus is on record for favoring the restoration of a married priesthood in the Western Church, and for reviving the ordination of women in the Catholic Communion of Churches, we ask Pope Francis to follow the majority of Catholics who stand in solidarity with Rev. Bourgeois.
John and Maureen Sheehan, Gloria Durka, Paul Bumbar, Jim Ewens, John Shankey
