Yup. We are catholic AND spiritual. We aren't Roman Catholic, but Holy Angels Parish is part of the Community Catholic Church (Old Catholic), which has valid orders and apostolic succession.
For many people, the word Catholic has a negative connotation, but "Catholic" simply means "universal." That is the essence of this community -- one that accepts and affirms all people on their path.
Not everyone can get to Niagara for church services, so Holy Angels offers ministry through this website so that people in diverse places can come together as a Church community online. We hope that you can join us.
