Rev. Liz and I would like to welcome you to the Saint Clare Pastoral Center website. We are part of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion* (ECC), the largest independent catholic jurisdiction in the United States, and a member of the National Council of Churches.  Our denomination traces its history through the European Old Catholic Churches who came together in opposition to the declaration of papal infallibility established by the First Vatican Council (1869-70).  Their mission was to offer valid sacraments that are open to all those seeking a faith community whose beliefs are grounded in the traditions of the early Christian church, while maintaining the basic integrity of the Catholic liturgy.

*For more information about our "communion of communities," please click here to be directed to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) tab of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC) website.

 
Peace and Blessings ... Rev. Jack & Rev. Liz
