Emmaus ECC seeks to provide an inclusive and welcoming Catholic Community, sharing the richness of the Catholic faith tradition, open to a progressive Catholic theology, available and accessible regardless of age, race, national origin, religious affiliation, gender or sexual orientation, and welcoming all regardless of differing abilities.   We desire to provide a source for deepening an individual's personal commitment to the life, teachings, and spirit of Jesus through prayer, study and mutual support.  We also seek to be engaged in social justice outreach rooted in Christian gospel values, interacting with the wider community. We are a gay friendly community.

What gives us great joy is to welcome people who grew up Catholic, or in another Christian tradition but feel they no longer fit in or belong in their Church.  We also welcome people who grew up in other traditions, or in no faith tradition; those who seek an inclusive and diverse community. We are a different and valid way to be Catholic.

ECC:  A wonderful way of being Catholic!

Local Church

A Pastoral Letter of the Presiding Bishop to the Faith Communities of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (Acts 2:42)

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

The local Church has been historically understood as comprising the bishop, laity, and clergy of a specific geographical area, in accord with the ancient Catholic tradition - an understanding of the Church which is embraced by the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC). The local Church is constituted whole, full and complete with these three elements - yet remains part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church (marked as such, which is rightly called a "communion.") "There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all." (Ephesians 4:5-6)  .... read more.
