Catholic. Welcoming. Affirming. Spiritual.

Our ancient Catholic faith upholds the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and their successors.

We trace our roots to the Church of Rome through the Archdiocese of Utrecht and the subsequent Union of Utrecht, which birthed the Old Catholic Church. 

We are Servants to All. We are a Haven of Mercy. We Maintain Open Doors.

The love of God meets us where we are, no matter where we are in our lives. The Church is called to mirror that love and be a haven of mercy, not condemnation.

Our doors and our arms are always open to welcome all people who are seeking belonging, community, and the faith no matter where they are in their journey.

We Welcome. We Love. We Forgive. We do not demand the Falsity of Good Behavior.

We believe that Jesus died for the sins of the whole world. Therefore, there is room at His table for all of us without limitation.

Our Church accepts and welcomes to the Table all who come, as we affirm people from all pasts, backgrounds, marital status and changes, genders, addictions, and sexual orientations.

We Affirm. We Care. We Journey Together.

Our ethos is rooted in our Franciscan Spirituality, and we place personal spiritual growth and exploration above religious tradition that often traps us into being legalistic. God’s first language is silence, and we honor a time of peace in everything we do.  

Spirituality involves the recognition of a feeling or sense of belief that there is something greater than us, something more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater whole of which we are part is cosmic or divine in nature. This is more of an individual practice and has to do with having a sense of peace and purpose.

We are Spiritual, but not at the Expense of Being Religious.

We are Not just Made by God. We are Made of God.

– Mother Julian of Norwich
