Women march in Rome for female Catholic priesthood

ROME (AP) - Women seeking to become priests have denounced the
Roman Catholic church's ban on female ordination, bringing their
campaign to the Vatican during a worldwide gathering of bishops.

About two dozen women marched across the Tiber River close to St. Peter's Square Wednesday, chanting "Ordain Women! Ordain
Women!"

In May, the Vatican insisted that the priesthood has always been
reserved for men and warned that women who take part in ordinations
will be excommunicated.

The current synod of bishops was convened by Pope Benedict to
discuss the relevance of the Bible for contemporary Catholics.
