Our Worship

"For where two or three
are gathered together
in My name, I am there
in the midst of them."
Matthew 18:20

The Liturgy (The Mass) is our supreme act of communal worship. It was given its form by the Apostles, and continued by the universal Church. From the earliest beginnings of the Christian Church there were variations in the manner in which the Eucharist was celebrated in the regional churches. Within these churches, with their mixed populations and differing historical development, local traditions, cultures and languages, it was inevitable that a large number of different types of Eucharistic prayers should emerge.

The unity of the Church of Christ and the unity of the Eucharistic Sacrifice did not require uniformity in the celebration of that Sacrifice. Therefore, The Old Catholic Church utilizes various liturgies in its worship. At. St. Francis Old Catholic Church, we use a mixture of The Old Catholic Mass and the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer.
