What is the Reformed Catholic Church?We are an independent Catholic Church, not affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church, and we are inclusive of people faithfully seeking to follow Jesus without excluding anyone. We welcome everyone to come and celebrate the Sacraments of the Church and engage with God through worship, no matter your past. For the divorced, we are a source of communion, for women seeking ministerial empowerment, we are a platform, for the LGBTQ community, we are a place of affirmation. We believe that Jesus accepts us all and that God calls everyone to participate in the life and leadership of the Church.
PRAYER - COMMUNITY - STUDY - PREACHING

Are you called to be a Dominican Friar?
First and foremost, we are preachers. This means we are men and women who live and teach the Gospel. We prepare our preaching through study and test our intellectual pursuits in the crucible of community in the real world. When all is said and done, we pray - for strength for our ministry, for knowledge, and for humility. If you would like to join us, contact us and let's discern your call together.
