Paula Ivory Hoeffer is a priest 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 extensively worldwide through student exchanges. Paula has been married for 50 years to Ed, a most supportive and loving husband. She has three daughters who keep her alive and energized, and nine 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.
