Who are Independent Catholics?
Independent Catholics celebrate diversity in all of it's forms. Our Parishes and non-parochial ministries are as diverse as the people we serve: Faith Based Substance Abuse Recovery, Peer Support Services for the Developmentally Disabled, those living with HIV/AIDS, the youth, the homeless, and the LGBTQ Community.
Our Clergy do not receive a salary from their ministry, requiring them to maintain full time employment in additional to their ministerial duties.
Many of our Priests and Bishops are married with children.
We believe in full and complete Marriage Equality: including same-sex couples, folks impacted by divorce, and those unable - or unwilling - to get an annulment to dissolve a previous marriage.
We welcome all Baptized believers to come forward and receive the Eucharist.
In short: it doesn't matter where you are on life's journey: where you've been or where you're going. It doesn't matter who you are on that journey with, or how long it's been:
All are welcome!
