Ecumenical Catholic Bishop of the Pacific Northwest Diocese
Let us act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:9)
Vision Statement: Ecumenical Catholics of the Pacific Northwest — Restoring relationships of justice, peace, and love with God, with one another, and with all of Creation by living out our baptismal ministry as the Body of Christ.
We are the Ecumenical Catholic Church of the Pacific Northwest embracing a network of sacramental communities in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. As authentic Catholics we celebrate our continuity with the undivided Church of the first millennium and believe that salvation is offered to all. Our unity is built on scripture and the Nicene Creed and Eucharist is the visible sign of that unity. We are in communion with the association of Churches known as the Ecumenical Catholic Communion and function within the generous parameters of the ECC Constitution. Ecumenical Catholic Communion.

Years ago I wrote a book titled All Creation Waits: The Unfulfilled Promise of Christianity. I wrote it so I could sort out my beliefs about God, about Church, about Christianity.

Even though much has changed since the writing of this book, it still offers a way to reflect on what you believe. It is offered on Amazon as paperback or kindle HERE. (If you get the book, ignore the endnote as the website no longer exists.)
