ST. PAUL CATHOLIC
COMMUNITY OF FAITH
A member community of the Rocky Mountain Region
of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion
"Everybody's Catholic Church"
Traditionally sacramental and liturgical, radically inclusive,
and active channels of God's grace in the world,
we commit to being "in the city for good."
All are welcome to join us in worship, at table, in service and in advocacy.
In this we are a Eucharistic People,
the Body of Christ incarnate,
the Blood of Christ poured out for the life of the world.
OUR PURPOSE & MISSION
There's more than one way to be Catholic.
As part of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion,
we are a progressive, all-inclusive community
living and worshiping in the ancient Catholic tradition.
We believe in the real and active presence of Christ
in Word, Sacrament and Community.
Aware of God’s inclusive love,
we believe that Christ invites all to receive from his table.
Every member of the church shares in
the discernments and decisions of our common life.
Individuals are called forward to assume
the various lay and ordained ministries of the church
out of the diversity of our membership—
married or in committed unions/single/divorced,
May the light of affirmation
overcome the darkness.
