What they believe
Here are some statements of faith for the North American Old Catholic Church:
» We are a church that worships God by living our faith every day of the week, speaking out against injustice and praying for healing in the world by being active believers, committed to loving our neighbors.
» We are a Catholic tradition inspired by the works of science and the deepest mysteries of God. Our faith is for believers and skeptics alike, as we have been a sanctuary and refuge to those disaffected by mainstream traditions and politically distorted teachings of Christ for nearly two centuries.
» As the progressive Catholic tradition, we believe in ecumenical and interfaith collaboration as an essential way to build a more holistic and loving world in accordance with the Gospels.
» We are a tradition of faith and works, love and action, hope and spiritual transformation. ... No matter your personal or faith story, your questions or your hope, all are welcome.
Ogden’s Glory to God Old Catholic Church, 375 Harrison Blvd., will host the group’s annual synod Aug. 3-5.
“Our congregation is honored and excited to be hosting the synod of our church,” Utah Bishop Jim Morgan said in a news release.
During the gathering, Morgan explained, bishops and lay leaders will consider policies, operations, initiatives and new projects. They also will ordain new deacons and priests.
