SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The founder of a Mormon women’s group who is facing excommunication will hold a vigil Sunday night in Salt Lake City along with hundreds of her supporters.
Meanwhile, church leaders in her former congregation in Virginia will discuss whether to excommunicate Kate Kelly from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It’s unknown when Kelly will be notified of the decision.
Kelly has decided not to attend the disciplinary hearing in her former congregation, instead sending in letters from her supporters.
As the leader of Ordain Women, Kelly is accused of apostasy, which is repeated and public advocacy of positions that oppose church teachings.
Mormon officials aren’t discussing Kelly’s case, but say that disciplinary hearings are held when members’ actions contradict church doctrine and lead others astray.
