Paula Ivory Hoeffer is one of the priests serving the Resurrection Community in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is busy presiding at home masses and being present to those who have been marginalized and are in need. She is a former Sister of Notre Dame de Namur. She taught for 32 years as a Catholic educator which has given her the wonderful opportunity to travel worldwide extensively through student exchanges. Paula is married for 41 years to Ed, a most supportive and loving husband, with three daughters who keep her alive and energized, and seven beloved grandchildren. She never imagined that she would become a woman priest, but received a definite call in prayer and has responded humbly and enthusiastically to this call.
