Something tells me the CCD program she attended during her genuinely-Catholic days had ample supplies of glitter and markers.
Carl Olson finds a Newsweek interview of another person who asserts she's a Catholic priest(ess).

She is a lot happier than the cohort of lemon-eating sisters striking a blow against patriarchy, kyriarchy and good sense. Moreover, she--unlike those determined to call themselves Catholic--admits that she is no longer a member of the Church.
So, a tall finger of fellowship to Newsweek for the title. Then again
A woman who left Catholicism is ordained to serve an offshoot church that claims it has a Catholic priesthood. Not surprisingly, the Catholic hierarchy does not have a lot to say about it because the episcopate can't comment on every Catholic who leaves the Church, but obviously cannot approve

However, like the unpleasantly-ordained who still call themselves communing Catholics, she privileges the zeitgeist and displays a feather-soft spirituality. For example: you will search in vain for references to discipleship in the interview.
Once again, it's the Church of the Perpetual Hello and Welcome. And they're bleeding to death everywhere you find them, regardless of the title they currently have on the sign out front.
I hope the ECC enjoys its instant of fame. I wouldn't care to bet on the odds of the communion making it to 2040.
