Join Us


We are affiliated with the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America or "CACINA" as we are known. We are Catholics but we have a different "GPS" than other catholic communities. By that we mean, we differ in areas of:

  • Gender: we have no gender bias regarding who may serve in ministry or leadership. 
  • Power: our canons define how each branch of CACINA - laity, clergy and bishops - contribute to governance. 
  • Sexual morality: we embrace the diversity of sexual expression as long as it is just, consensual and not destructive.  

To find out more about how we are different, click the "More About CACINA" button below. 

 If you are among the many many  who are disenchanted or scandalized or rejected by other churches, but seek a truly catholic community, take a closer look at us. 

We welcome ….

  • Everyone seeking to build a deep loving relationship with God and neighbor.
  • Those disenchanted with the recent conservative trends in many churches. 
  • Women seeking an equal voice; including attaining ministerial roles.
  • Those who are divorced and seek the sacraments. 
  • Members of the LGBTQi community.
  • Married folks wanting ministerial roles.
  • Former clergy who want to minister again .


With us you will find an affirming, loving, non-judgemental community made of people who are just like you.
