Last month, Norma Jean Coon renounced her attempted ordination to the diaconate. And on Friday, the feast of the Annunciation, she publicly announced that her excommunication was lifted:
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has lifted any canonical sanctions that I incurred by attempting ordination as a deacon. A letter from Bishop Robert Brom states that I may now return to the full practice of our Catholic faith. I have been very touched at the remarkable support of my actions and the prayers offered in my behalf during this trying time. I wish to thank all those who have prayed for me and for my family. The prayers and masses have been deeply appreciated. May Lent and Easter hold many blessings for you and your family.
Sincerely in our Lord,
Norma Jean Coon
