FLORENCE LI TIM-OI

FIRST WOMAN PRIEST IN THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION, 24 JANUARY 1944


Florence Li Tim-Oi was ordained a priest by Bp. Ronald Hall of Hong Kong in 1944, primarily because of difficulties occasioned by the Japanese occupation of China. A storm of protest after the war forced her to refrain from exercising her role as a priest. Towards the end of her life, she emigrated to Canada where she was able to resume her priestly duties. She died in 1992.
