This is a great time to join a Church! We are beginning a new liturgical year on December 3rd and will begin reading from the Gospel of Mark.

They gathered in small groups and continued to express their Catholic faith as best they could. When the ordination of Mary Ramerman brought national attention to an Old Catholic bishop named Peter a door opened before these seekers. What these Catholics di ..read more
