Glory to Jesus Christ!
Слава Ісусу Христу!
“Welcome one another just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Romans 15:7)
Whether you are just browsing or are searching out a new faith community, we are delighted to extend to you a very warm welcome! To give you some idea of what we’re about, the following is a sketch of our foundational beliefs.
We are committed to the embodiment of God’s love and justice within and through the people and mission of the Orthodox-Catholic Church of America. The core of our faith is found in Jesus’ response to the question “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” – we are to “love God with all our heart, soul (being) and mind” and to “love neighbor as self” (Matthew 22:36-40).
We advocate for faithful, systemic and intersectional solutions to our human struggles, so that we might fully welcome all persons and thereby love God, others and self, according to the good news of Jesus Christ.
…is to build community in a way that bridges the monastic community with the extended community, to all who share our mission.
