Our clergy, who are based in Wales and the North, South and South West of England, are able to administer the Sacraments.
Most of our priests carry out their ministry through social action within their daily life and work. Areas of this social ministry vary, according to the individual calling of our priests, and currently this includes work in Suicide Prevention; Spiritual Teaching and Mentoring; engaging in areas such as Death and Dying, as well as social and community support.
We have an 'open altar', which means that we welcome all people seeking a closer relationship with the Divine, whatever your faith path. The word of God is there for every one to hear and prescribe. You do not have to be a member to receive Communion. LCCI is an inclusive church.
The Liberal Catholic Church International does not as a group require any belief in theosophical tenets, while it continues to accept them if they are the personal choice of the individual. Since 2004, the Liberal Catholic Church International opens the ordination of women to all Holy Orders up to and including bishop.
Laypersons in the Church come from diverse backgrounds and from all spiritual paths. Due to the open nature of the Church, no layperson is required to accept any of the more "formal" beliefs of the Church, and are allowed to accept or reject them as they please.
We are also able to offer five day online retreats under the guidance and support of a member of our clergy. To discover more, please contact us.
