Let’s not pray for change in the Church; let’s live the change, right here and right now. Ecumenical Catholicism is one of many expressions of the ancient, undivided and apostolic Catholic faith where the clergy marry, women are ordained, and the Sacraments are available to persons of all orientations!
Divorced? Two Christian traditions in your home? LGBTQI+? A woman called to leadership? Committed to fight for racial justice and the dignity of immigrants? Live your values with Charis without compromising. The Charis Community is justice-focused, sacramentally inclusive of all, and democratic in our leadership at all levels locally and nationally.
Wherever you are on your journey, know that you are wanted and welcome at Charis, the first Ecumenical Catholic Community in Minnesota.
