About Li Tim-Oi

Florence Li Tim-Oi was the first woman to be ordained to the priesthood in the Anglican Communion, on 25 January 1944.

In May 1907 Li Tim-Oi’s father called her “Much Beloved” because he valued her as a daughter even if others preferred sons. When she was baptised as a student Li Tim-Oi chose the name ‘Florence” after Florence Nightingale, the famous 19th century English nurse. 

She was awarded Doctorates of Divinity by General Theological Seminary, New York, and Trinity collage, and Toronto.
