Sacramental Community of the Coworkers of Christ

We believe that God is calling us to be a faithful and growing, ecumenical sacramental community that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality, and a passion for social justice. Our faith and beliefs as Catholics are rooted in the spirit of the ancient Didache – the Apostolic Teachings of the Church, yet interpreted within the richness of the postmodern culture in which we live. Our beliefs are a living reflection of the nature and call of God. 

We believe that everyone is called by God to gather together as a faith community, the One True Church, undivided by human boundaries, doctrines, organizational schemes, prejudices, languages and cultures, to share in the creation of God’s Commonwealth. This community, in Christian Tradition is also referred to as the Body of Christ, the collective presence of the living, resurrected Christ in the world. 

We thank God for giving all people a share in the priesthood of Christ, and empowering each person with the ability to become God’s child, to directly experience God’s reconciliation, love and justice without any human intermediary or impediment. All Christians are called into ministry of healing, reconciliation, justice, worship and witnessing to the Good News of Christ. 

We affirm the equality of every person in life, faith, sacrament and service, regardless of age, ability, race, sexuality or gender, appearance, culture, vocation, socioeconomic status, or theological opinion. We recognize the four orders of the priesthood: laity, deacons, presbyters and bishops all working together to manifest the Commonwealth of God.

Currently we are a very small community with a few clergy scattered geographically across the United States.  Please feel free to contact us to see if there is a cleric of the Sacramental Community of the Coworkers of Christ near you or someone from the greater Independent Sacramental Movement to whom we might refer you.  Thank you so much for your interest in the Sacramental Community of the Coworkers of Christ!
