That headline should read First Episcopal Order for Women. The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement in Garrison, New York swam the Tiber in 1909 under Fr. Paul Wattson.
Good catch! I interpret for the deaf at Christ the Redeemer parish in Northern Virginia, which is run by the Atonement Friars. Great community.

(Obama is the least qualified guy in whatever room he walks into.)
Having done a little research since posting, I must back away from my statement. It turns out Fr. Paul founded his order with a women's community under Mother Lurana White. Both friars and sister entered the church in 1909.
Let's say "First in a Century" and leave it at that. Welcome Sisters.
