A group of Roman Catholics protested outside Holy Name Cathedral in support a priest who is in favor or ordaining women.

They held signs in front of the church for Father Roy Bourgeois, who is being removed from the priesthood because he refused to recant his support of ordaining women as priests in the Catholic Church. The group says it hopes to send a message to Cardinal Francis George and other priests who attended Mass Tuesday.

ABC7 was unable to reach the archdiocese of Chicago for a comment.
