Vigil for Mormon woman facing excommunication Published: June 23, 2014

As Kate Kelly's former church leaders met in Virginia on Sunday night to decide if she will be ousted from her church, about 200 supporters of the founder of a prominent Mormon women's group held a vigil in Salt Lake City, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reports Kelly has decided not to attend the disciplinary hearing in her former congregation. Instead, she has sent in a letter she wrote and about 1,000 letters from supporters.

The bishop of her former congregation emailed Kelly to tell her he and other leaders considered her status and reviewed her response, spokeswoman Laurie Turner said in a statement. It says the bishop wants to weigh the decision, and he will notify her likely Monday, the AP reports.
