Prayer Project

Started by the Order of Our Lady and the ladies of OLQA after the 2011 Triennial Clerical Synod with the support of the US Regionary Brishop, the Prayer Project prays for the friends, family and other loved-ones “in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.” (Liturgy of the LCC)

About The Liberal Catholic Church

The Liberal Catholic Church is an independent Catholic Church. Our heritage comes from the Old Catholic Church, which separated from Rome in 1870, when Pope Pius IX declared that he was infallible on matters of faith and morals. In 1916, the Old Catholic Church in Great Britain changed its name to the Liberal Catholic Church. We have strictly maintained the Apostolic Succession since our original affiliation with Rome, to ensure that our Holy Orders and Sacraments remain valid.

Open communion is offered to all who approach Christ’s altar with reverence and respect. More…


6 December 2017 — Urgent Prayer Request

I spoke with our Regionary Archbishop William Downey last evening. He requested prayers on behalf of our Provincial Pro-Cathedral in Ojai, California, where wildfires are burning out of control. 

Bp William and all his family and pets are safely evacuated from Ojai and are on their way to a location further up the coast, where they have been able to secure rooms.  27,000 people have been evacuated in the Ventura/Ojai region due to this fire, so the situation in the area is dire.

Please pray for our Pro-Cathedral; for Bp William and his family; for all who have been evacuated/threatened/harmed by this fire; and for all the firefighters. I will keep all updated as I learn more.

Thank you,

Kathleen Clute

Secretary, Board of Directors, The Liberal Catholic Church, Province of the United States

UPDATE from Archbishop William, 12/10, evening:

“Friends:

With deep gratitude to God and the Angel Hosts, we are home and our Church, homes and properties are in good condition. Thanks to all for their prayers and concern.

Anita and William”
