Similarities and Differences

Differing from Roman Catholic discipline, however, our priests and bishops may choose to marry. The grace and experience of the Sacrament of Marriage can greatly increase the efficacy of priestly ministry by transforming it into a mutual ministry of both husband and wife, and endowing it with added empathy and understanding.

 

Like the Roman Catholic Church, we regret the tragedy of divorce, but in light of the Gospels, we do not see the exclusion of remarried Catholics from the sacraments as consistent with the spirit of Christ's ministry.

To contact us:

In our church, divorced Catholics can celebrate marriage before a priest more than once and live out their marriage in full communion with the Church.

When you attend Mass at Christ the King Mission Catholic Church, you are welcomed to receive the Holy Eucharist at Mass; your children are welcomed to the Sacraments of Initiation and at the completion of earthly life, the dignity of a Catholic Burial.

 

Like the Roman Catholic Church, we see Baptism as the sacrament of initiation which makes all of the other sacraments available to us.

Unlike the Roman Catholic Church, we welcome all baptized Christians to join us in the reception of the sacraments of Eucharist and Penance.

Like the Roman Catholic Church, couples in our parishes realize that having children is an important purpose of marriage, and that they must be responsible in limiting the size of their families according to their ability to provide for them.

 

Unlike the Roman Catholic Church, we do not condemn the use of artificial contraception as a means to achieve this goal of responsible parenthood.
