DAILY MASS AND THE DAILY PRAYING AND STUDY OF SCRIPTURE
FORM THE HEART OF ANCIENT CELTIC ORTHODOX SPIRITUALITY
THE CELTIC ORTHODOX CHURCH IS UNIQUE – BY THE GRACE OF GOD
BIBLICAL ORTHODOXY IS TRUE ORTHODOXY
WE ARE THE ANCIENT CHURCH STILL LIVING
THE FAITH AS ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS
The Celtic Orthodox Church is a Western Rite expression of the Faith from the Johannine Branch of Christianity of those churches founded by the twelve apostles, (Gallican, Celtic, Mozabarec, Coptic, Byzantine.) The Roman Catholic Church is from the Pauline branch of the Church.
CELTIC ORTHODOXY ESTABLISHED IN 37 AD IS THE
OLDEST WESTERN RITE ORTHODOX CHURCH
WE ARE PART OF BIBLICAL ORTHODOXY
The Celtic Orthodox Church is so
Ancient it demands respect, so
Traditional it is refreshing and so
Conservative it is reassuring

HISTORY OF THE CELTIC ORTHODOX CHURCH
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
The people who are attracted to this ancient church feel there is something missing in their present worship. They feel the Holy Spirit is calling them to a deeper participation in worship. They feel the need to worship with their bodies as well as their minds and hearts. The holistic worship of the Celtic Orthodox Church satisfies that inner longing in their souls. Holistic worship employs the whole person in worship.
Holistic worship compels us to kneel and prostrate ourselves before the Christ physically present on the Altar and to bow with our heads low in front of the God of our salvation. People attracted to the Celtic Orthodox Church are people who appreciate the fact that when they receive the Eucharist, in a very real way they become a Tabernacle of the Most High God as was the Virgin Mary before them. The Virgin Mother of the Christ was the first Tabernacle, and for this reason we call her the Theotokos which means “God bearer”. Every believer who receives with faith the Divine Sacrifice of the Altar, which we call the Eucharist, becomes a “God bearer”.
People who find a home within Celtic Orthodoxy have a clear understanding of being called out from society to be uniquely Gods own. We obey Christ in worshipping the Father in Spirit and in Truth. We ask the Father to give us the strength to carry the Cross behind Jesus. We do not ask the Father to remove the Cross because we know that only by carrying the Cross do we have synergy with the Father in Christ.
Celtic Orthodox worship the Father on Saturday as ordered by the Scriptures and as practiced for the first 600 hundred years of the church. We believe in all 10 Commandments, not just 9 Commandments. We realize God commanded the Sabbath worship before there was a Jewish people so the Sabbath worship is not a “Jewish Sabbath”. When God gave the 10 Commandments He said “REMEMBER” to keep holy the Sabbath. God continued the Commandment to worship on the Sabbath from the earliest days even before there was a Jewish nation or people. Today, it may not always be possible to participate at Mass on the Sabbath but there are many other ways to keep holy the Sabbath without coming to church. _________________________________________________________
The Celtic Orthodox Church worships the Father on Sunday in keeping with the tradition established by the Apostles. On Sundays we give the Father thanks and praise for the victory of His Holy Spirit in the Resurrection of His Christ. Without having to place our hands in the wounds of the Christ, we kneel before Jesus and, like Thomas, humbly say my Lord and my God. We give the Father thanks and praise for the gift of our faith in Him and in His Christ that allows us to call ourselves “Christian”. We know that a Christian is one who shares in the anointing of the Christ. We know that the anointing of the Christ, received by faith, makes us adopted children of God in and through Christ.
