Catholic Universalist Church

 
 
 
Baptism
Pleasse register at least one month before. . Bring a copy of the Birth Certificate and names of Godparents. Although not required, you might want to consider a canonized catholic name for the person to be baptised.
Matrimony
We hold that the same sacramental grace to a man and a woman as to a same gendered couple. Arrangements should be made with Fr. David Kone for preperation.

Holy Eucharist
We teach that the Holy Eucharist is a means of receiving special grace. This can be interpreted in many ways, including transubstantiation into the body of Jesus, or His true presence in the sacrament.
 
Annointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick was once called Extreme Unction or the Sacrament of the Dying. The sacrament is now an anointing and a blessing that offers the grace to overcome frailties and the strength, peace and courage to overcome the difficulties of serious illness.
Penance
General Absolution is given at Mass. We find God's unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others. Private confession available upon request.


Holy Orders
In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead by bringing them the sacraments , by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness. We welcome men and women to receive the rite of the Sacrament of Holy Orders
 
Confirmation
Confirmation is the sacrament by which our connection received at baptism is perfected, or completed, and sealed with a special infusion of grace from the Holy Spirit. This sacrament is usually received in the early teenage to adult years. The confirmand chooses a name of a Christian saint as a patron, and is given that additional name by the bishop when the sacrament is bestowed using holy chrism.
