Introduction

"[A]ll the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—all the while praising God... And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved." see Acts 2: 44-47

The story of the first Christians, as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles, is the a part of the guiding framework for what the Church is called to be: a home for living out our commitment to Jesus Christ in the midst of today's world.

The Primitive Catholic Community is a religious community, composed of clergy and laypersons, men and women, married and single, who are committed to living out this Christian commitment through mission work in contemporary society. 

The spirituality of the Primitive Catholic Community is rooted in regular prayer, communal worship, service on the margins, space for silence, and living lives of balance amid a chaotic world. We are deeply committed to orthodox Christianity, and our common life is enhanced by the witness of leaders of the early Church, as well as the example of life and mission modeled by religious orders such as the Benedictines and Franciscans. 


Though we are united in spirit, we do not maintain a cloister or monastic house. Instead, we balance the use of modern technology and regular gatherings to build community and relationship within our community.
