The Journey With Jesus Christ

About Us and Our Church History

Below, you will find the links that tell you a little about us, our Church history, and our Catholic Faith.

Who Are WE?  We are a small, but growing Independent Roman Catholic Jurisdiction.  We work for God, and the work we do is in God's name.  Let us now take the time here and give all Glory and Honor to God, and praise God the Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, The Holy Ghost, and revere Mother Mary, and His Catholic Church.

We are Independent "Roman Catholics" under an Independent Roman Catholic Jurisdiction which follows the Statement of Matthew from the Utrecht Convention of 1911 which also aligns itself and follows the Old Catholic Doctrine and the Roman Catholic Doctrine and Canons for the most part.  The differences are in the Holy Bible intepretation and as compared to the interpretation of the Catholic Vulgate and Roman Catholic Canons.

We are not part of the Roman Catholic Church in Rome or part of the Roman Catholic Vatican.  We are true Western Rite Orthodox Roman Catholics.  What does this all mean?  Simple!  We are true Roman Catholics, but not under Rome.  We adhere to the same Sacramental Rites as the Roman Catholic Church recognizes: Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage, and Holy Orders.  We offer the same Mass and Liturgy with exception to offering Masses that were offered after 1948 but before 1962 when the Second Vatican Council, also called Vatican II, (196265), 21st Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church, announced by Pope John XXIII on January 25, 1959, as a means of spiritual renewal for the Church and as an occasion for Christians separated from Rome to join in a search for Christian unity.  Our Masses and other services and work we do is identical to the Roman Catholic Church of Rome.  However, our Catechsim is the Saint Basil Catechism.

There are differences between the Holy See (Roman Catholic Vatican) and our equivalent but the lesser, our Primatical See.  Christ Catholic Church loves and respects the Roman Catholic Holy See and Pope Francis, and therefore, our Primate is only an Archbishop - Primate-Archbishop.

Our equivalent of the Roman Catholic "College of Bishops", or "Curia" is called the "Holy Synod".  The head of our Holy Synod is the Archbishop of the Holy Synod - Archbishop-Metropolitan.

If you have not visited our Catechism page and Our Canon Law page, please do so.  The Catechism page outlines our Religious doctrine (Our Confession of Faith) and its tenets, and the Canons lists the Canon Laws of our Church.  We will be updating our Catechism and Canon Laws by 01 JUN 2020 to bring it in line with the Roman Catholic Church in many respects, while we still maintain our Independent Catholic Jurisdiction.  There will be some differences between the Roman Catholic Jurisdiction and our Independent Roman Catholic Jurisdiction.
