Let Us Take Up the Towel and Basin
"Let us SERVE like Jesus who became the SERVANT of ALL."
WHO CAN SIT AT THE TABLE
The Dalai Lama once said, "Religion is like going out to dinner with friends. Everyone may order something different, but you can still sit at the same table." If only people of different religions could sit peacefully at the same table. Jesus used an open table as a way to shatter the boundaries that divide people. All people were welcome at our table; no hierarchy, no judgement, no hard and fast etiquette - just respectful faith. In fact, at Jesus’ table the least prominent guests sat at the head of the table. It is tragic that in so much religion, the table (communion table) has become the focus of exclusion, only for the worthy.
OUR EUCHARISTIC TABLE IS AN OPEN TABLE
Welcome, and thank you for visiting our Church online. Our Cathedral Church is a congregation within the apostolic sacramental tradition.
We try to be a Christian community in which people of all ages, sexual orientations and definitions (GLBTQI), cultural backgrounds and socioeconomic background are included as equally valued participants in the community.
We cherish diversity and offer a safe place where individuals can explore their faith beliefs in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We seek to be Ecumenical by encouraging open dialogue with people from various faith traditions.
Through an 'open table' policy, we enjoy worshipping God as revealed in Jesus the Christ through ritual and symbol so as to be agents of peaceful social change.
Our Mission Statement
The Ecumenical Catholic Church is an open and affirming church in the sacramental tradition. Jesus did not discriminate—neither do we. Offering ‘Light and Life to All’.
The Church offers the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist after appropriate preparation. All other sacraments are by appointment with The Bishop or his delegated priest.
