Old Catholic Ministries of the Holy Cross — Holy Cross Enid — is an open and affirming Old Catholic Community focused on serving outside the traditional church setting. Our purpose is to fulfill Christ’s command, to “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”
What is Old Catholic?
Our beliefs are of the Catholic tradition. We are a tradition rich with progressive Catholic values. Our Faith Tradition is rooted in Scripture, with a focus on Jesus’ teachings on peace, love, justice, and equality.
The Old Catholic Church split from the Roman Catholic Church over Papal Infallibility in the late 1800s.
As a two thousand year old church with Apostolic Succession, our tradition believes that faith is dependent on our actions towards the care of the oppressed, disenfranchised, poor, and unwell. Read more
Holy Cross does not serve in a traditional church setting. We seek to serve those in need, where they are, when they need to be served. We have a regular service of Communion and Unction at 2 p.m. Sundays in the East Pavilion at Government Springs Park. If you would like to receive Communion or host a home service, please contact Seminarian James Neal at HolyCrossEnid@gmail.com.
Holy Cross seeks to serve “the least of these,” wherever we may encounter them. Current ministries include Homeless/Street, Nursing Home, Prison and Bicycle ministries. For more information, visit our Ministries page.
Open. Affirming. Loving.
Holy Cross Enid, and the US Old Catholic Church as a whole, is an open and affirming Catholic Church, celebrating the Seven Sacraments of the traditional Church, with full Apostolic Succession. God’s children, regardless of sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, are welcome to participate and serve in the full Sacramental life of the Church, including Marriage and Ordination. God loves you the way God made you, and so do we.
