History made and recalled last January: the Rev. Jackie Means celebrated and preached on Holy Name Day at the place where it happened 40 years ago, All Saints’, Indianapolis. Bishop Craine pushed TEC both firmly and gently to approve women’s ordination churchwide, while regularizing a handful of rebellious wimmin who’d been ordained starting in 1974. He prefered to stay within the law and so did she; she had offenders to answer to as soon as she got back to work. (Diocese of Indianapolis)
