The Called

The Called

Roman Catholic women are feeling called by God to become priests, but the Church forbids their ordination. This film explores the challenges and hopes of what it means to be an aspiring Roman Catholic priest in America today. It centers on the experiences of three Catholic women. Sarah and Claire are friends in their twenties who both are exploring their calls to the Catholic priesthood. They are re-imagining what the Church and priesthood could look like. Sarah has decided to become a Roman Catholic woman priest, despite the risk of excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church. Claire, however, feels called to stay within the Roman Catholic Church. She helps Sarah as Sarah begins to build her own Catholic church in her backyard in Duluth, Minnesota. Meanwhile, Marie is an older woman who has already built her own Catholic church on Cape Cod. She was one of the first women in the US to be ordained through the Roman Catholic Women Priest movement, which is not recognized as legitimate by the Vatican. While these women differ in their approaches, they share a desire to rebuild the Catholic Church.
