The Holy Orthodox Catholic Discipleship Ministries serves those in the body of Jesus Christ (and to all that Christ call through this ministry) who are called to Serve Jesus Christ in the priesthood.
The O.C.A.N.A. holds its apostolic succession from the Orthodox and Catholic Church. Church sacraments and ordinations are valid.
The Orthodox Catholic Discipleship Ministries holds the Holy Scriptures and the traditions of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church as means by which the teachings of Jesus Christ have been handed down to his followers and as the recording of the faith journey of the Church.
The offices of Archbishops, Bishops, Priests and Deacons within the Orthodox Catholic Discipleship Ministries exist for the service of the faithful in providing them with spiritual guidance and support, as well as in the celebration of the liturgy and the sacraments and other functions pertaining to those ordained to holy orders.
All those who sincerely wish to join with the Orthodox Catholic Discipleship Ministries as followers of Jesus Christ are welcome to share and participate fully in our liturgies, sacraments and other expressions of our mystical union with God.
The seven sacraments are offered to those who wish to receive them. The Eucharistic liturgy is celebrated in various ancient and modern rituals. In addition to the preceding, contemplative prayer, meditation, spiritual healing, teaching and counseling form an integral part of the life of our congregations and members.
The Orthodox Catholic Discipleship Ministries seeks to be a witness to and be an enabler of community growth in love of God, all humankind and creation in its life of worship and the public endeavors in which its members are called to give service.
We believe that Yahweh God's revelation, in and through Jesus Christ and in addition to being present in the sacramental life of the Church, also has a personal or individual aspect. We thus believe that understanding the divine comes from our personal encounter with God through prayer, meditation etc. We strive to form a community of faith with love, devotion and abandonment to God in and through Jesus Christ as our foundation. We are at your service, and ready to help!
P.S. Archbishop Michael Holds Apostolic Succession From St. Peter. This Ministry Is in Communion With The Orthodox and Roman Churches That Profess And Live Out The Life And Love of Jesus Christ!
Go and make disciples of every nation... Matthew 28:18-20.
