Are you Roman Catholic?

We are Catholic in the Independent Sacramental Movement

The Universal Catholic Church has its roots in The Old Catholic Church and maintains valid Apostolic Succession. While we are not under the authority of Rome, the Vatican does in fact recognize our Priesthood and Sacraments as valid.


What Sacraments do you offer?

Seven Sacraments

We offer all seven sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. We don't withhold the sacraments from anyone based on age, gender, race, marital status, or sexual orientation as we believe that sacraments are gifts from God, not rewards to be earned. We ordain men and women, married or single, gay or straight, to Holy Orders and we offer communion to any baptized Christian, even the divorced. We also offer spiritual retreats for small groups or institutions
