Well since people evidently couldn't figure it out on their own, the Vatican had to formally acknowledge the automatic excommunication of the women who are playing priest.

Vatican: Attempted ordination of women incurs excommunication
By Cindy Wooden
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The Vatican's doctrinal congregation has decreed formally that a woman who attempts to be ordained a Catholic priest and the person attempting to ordain her are automatically excommunicated.
"Both the one who attempts to confer a sacred order on a woman, and the woman who attempts to receive a sacred order, incur an excommunication 'latae sententiae,'" or automatically, said a decree from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Full story

Women priests do not exist in the Roman Catholic Church - period.

Any female saying that she is a priest is obviously not part of the Latin Rite Church. Services by these individuals are schismatic - they have nothing to do with the Catholic Church and are, therefore, separate from the Church. If an Assembly of God minister called himself a Catholic priest, it would be a lie (plus, his congregation would probably have him institutionalized) just as much as it is a lie for any woman to say she is a Catholic priest.

Just because I might call myself purple, I am not purple - no matter how much I like the color.
