Recently there was an article about the Catholic church making it easier for members to convert to Catholicism. Does this go for priest as well? And if the priest converts will he be allowed to practice in the Catholic church? If he is married will he be asked to divorce his wife?
Are they called priest ;)

It is my understanding that married Anglican priests can convert, and they would stay married, this is done on a case my case bases. Any unmarried Anglican priests converting would take a vow of celibacy.

I believe that woman can preach and practice God to the masses just like men can.
The Catholic church also believes that woman can preach and practice God to the masses. There are a great many women who preach - I personally have preached and taught to people at Catholic Churches as a Catholic religious educator. There are women who hold leadership positions at the Vatican. It's just that women cannot become ordained priests.
