Our purpose is to welcome all who are searching for a community of faith
in which to deepen their relationship with God and to share with others the
gifts of faith, hope and love, that are found in being a disciple of Jesus
Our vision is to be a faith community in which all people find hope, the
wounded find healing, the excluded are welcomed and the disenfranchised
find a home.  We aim to be a community of people who welcome, affirm in
the journey of faith, and challenge all to an even deeper more intimate
relationship with Jesus Christ and each other.
We invite you to join us!  We are one of many Old Catholic Churches
throughout the United States. We celebrate the presence of God in
Liturgy, Education, Stewardship and Outreach.  We are a community that
comes together to share our experience, strength and hope with each
other, so that we can live out our faith in our daily lives.  We celebrate
the richness of the Sacramental life in all seven Sacraments and welcome
all baptized persons to participation.  We are a community dedicated to
openness, and honesty.  We are committed to collaboration and
collegiality.  We are self governing, and self supporting.
