The life and focus of our Church is centred in the historical roots of Catholic Eucharistic theology and Tradition. We affirm that gender, marital status and sexual orientation are not to be used as exclusionary factors. We welcome the inclusion of women in the priesthood, the marriage of priests and the wedding of gay and lesbian couples as gifts of God. We strive to be a place of healing for those who have been hurt by their church of origin, but still yearn for Catholic spirituality and liturgy.
In the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus we find the intimate and loving union of the love of Christ Jesus in His Sacred Heart and the sacrifice of His Body and Blood made continually present to the world in the Eucharist at Mass and in the Blessed Sacrament.
Our experience of Jesus’ Sacred Heart transforms us so that we can embody love and mercy to all people. Our embrace of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus gives us compassionate love to proclaim the living Gospel.
We depend on the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus to guide and protect the Eucharistic Catholic Church so that we may live the divine life offered us by the Body and Blood of Jesus. Drawing on the life of the Holy Spirit, we desire to proclaim to the world the wonders of Christ’s love by becoming instruments of His peace.
Most Reverend J. Roger LaRade, O.F.A.
