OUR CHURCH GROWTH:   We are still growing and merging with other independent Churches from around the world.

A Blessing from Arcbishop Dana Lakin:

"FOOT PRINTS IN THE SAND"...  God's promise that He will always be there in times of despair!

First, before I post the poem "Foot Prints In The Sand" below bottom in the center column, I want to extend a Blessing here to our retired Archbishop, Alfred DeLeo.  I have worked with him for many years and enjoyed working with him.  He is steadfast in the Lord.  It was through his ministry and efforts that Christ Catholic Church - Worldwide has grown over the last two and a half decades, and now has many Christian partnerships and Churches in different countries.

Recently, Archbishop DeLeo has been severely harassed in several Facebook group chats without provocation or cause by those who are Clergy from other Churches outside of our juridsdiction.  However, God has manifested His Glory in this issue and has proven that He is greater than the sum of all on earth and in Heaven.  God has intervened in this harassment of Archbishop DeLeo because God saw the wrong in all of this.  What God has done is provide a blessed job opportunity for Archbishop DeLeo.  The Lord has delivered him from these evil taunts.  A multi-national company became aware of this harassment online from other Clergy and immedialtely hired Archbishop DeLeo at a very generous, monthly salary plus benefits, a car, and a home.  His monthly salary alone is three times more than I make in a month.  Praise you our Glorified Father in Heaven - All Glory and Honor to you!  The Church, our Church family around the globe, and I, extend our blessings to Archbishop DeLeo.  In closing... Personally, I have come to grow in the Lord by being a faithful and humble disciple and servant by reading the Holy Scriptures, and loving others unconditionally without judgment.  (1 St. Peter 4:8, 2 St. Timothy 2:15-16, and St John 8:1-11).  Where do you stand in accepting and loving others unconditionally, with forgiveness, and without judgment?

Welcome to...

Christ Catholic Church

- Worldwide -

We are an independent Old Western Rite Orthodox Catholic Church governed in accordance with the Principles and Faith of the Ancient Church which existed prior to the Great Schism of 1054 when Rome separated from Constantinople (the Eastern Rite Orthodox Church).

We are a true Catholic Church in act and deed similar to the Roman Catholic Church, though an Independent Catholic Jurisdiction.  We recognize and practice all Seven Sacraments: Baptism, The Eucharist (Holy Communion), Confirmation Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage, and Holy Orders.

As part of our Confession of the Ancient Faith, our beliefs and doctrine includes and accepts The Munich Statement of 1871, Declaration of Utrecht of 1889, and the Statement of Faith of Archbishop Matthew of 1911, and follow the Canons (in-principle) of the Roman Catholic Church with some modifications based on the Holy Scriptures.

We are a "Mission Church", working with other Independent Catholic Church Jurisdictions to bring all Catholics together under a principle of Christian unity.

Footprints In The Sand
by Carolyn Joyce Carty

One night a man had a dream.  He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.  Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.  For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.  He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.  This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.  But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints.  I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.  During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."


"Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the law and the prophets."

St. Matthew 7:12 (New American Bible (Revised Edition)

We joyously and without condition, Love and Serve a Risen Christ.  We believe in humble servitude in the service of God and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, no matter what our condition or circumstances.  We love, forgive, bless and pray for others unconditionally, as Jesus loved us, and forgave us of our sins, regardless if someone hurt us or did a wrong to us.  God LOVES ALL OF US and ACCEPTS US for who we are.  We love each person as an individual regardless of what their past was, as God Loves us as His children, individually, and without condition.

The Beatitudes.  In St. Matthew, Chapter 5, Jesus said:

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
        for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,
        for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
        for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
        for righteousness,
        for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,
        for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,
        for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
        for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
        for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

This is what God's Word tells us!

Come As You Are...

If you are a Catholic (whether Roman, Orthodox (Eastern \ Byzantine), Reformed, Anglican, Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, or other Catholic) we encourage you to participate in and support your Church, grow in the Holy Spirit, and encourage other fellow Catholics to do the same, and when you can, visit and celebrate the Mass with us.

However, if you are of the Catholic Faith or of the Protestant and Non-Denominational Faiths and feel disenfranchised, discarded, and left out by your Church, YOU are welcome in our Church.

"But seek ye first, the Kingdom of God and all His Righteousness, and ALL things will be added unto you."  St. Matthew 6:33

Faith and Worship

Worship in the Independent Catholic Church

The Independent Catholic Churches, which separated and evolved from the Roman Catholic Church, are true Catholic Churches but just not under Rome.  These Churches teach Catholicism and in Castholicism worship is at the centre of church life and the individual life of each believer.  It is therefore very important for every Catholic to take part in worship frequently, sharing the sacraments and observing Festivals and Holy days.  Worship in the Independent Catholic Churches ahere to the formality of the Roman Catholic Church, which is formal and liturgical.  Who Are the Western Orthodox Catholic people?   To Find Out - Click Here And Come See What We Believe:  ABOUT US & OUR HISTORY.

  We are in great need to create a more comprehensive World Health initiative in our "Doctors-On-Loan" ("DOL") and "Medical Missions of Mercy" ("MMOM") programs to bring free health care services to the poor in the underserved, rural areas in the United States, Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Romania, Peru, Brazil, and several other countries.  We urgently need volunteer Medical Doctors and Nurses and medical supplies and equipment.  Most importantly, we need medical supplies and equipment for Ukrainew.  For more information about our programs, please email us at:
