Spreading the Love of God


A Divine Unconditional Love for All

We, the Catholic Church of the Americas (CCA), as a member of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, proclaim our mission as rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We offer a sacramental and affirming presence to all in their diversity. We, as an independent Catholic community, strive for the work of fostering unity while celebrating the various faith traditions among Christians in accord with Jesus' prayer "that all may be one." As a People of God, we are called to ministries that are loving, inclusive, and promoting of justice to further the reign of God.

About Us

Our Mission

A group of Priests and Deacons decided 25 years ago that there was too much discrimination within the church. We realized that many Catholics were losing faith due to the many scandals in which the church was involved. Thus, we offer an alternative to the Catholic Church that is open to everyone.


An International Catholic Church, we have small faith communities in Louisiana, Massachusetts, as well as several in Africa. Using the Vatican II Liturgy, we enjoy valid Tactile Apostolic Succession in a socially liberal priesthood. We love having your voice heard.

The Catholic Church of the Americas (CCA) dates back to the times of Christ, and our denomination has been in existence for over 25 years. The CCA accepts the theology taught by the creedal statement of the Ecumenical Councils as professed universally by the Church throughout the ages. We share with all Christians the belief that Jesus is the Child of God and Redeemer of humanity. We are united with others through the gift of Baptism. The CCA is a sacramental, celebrating the seven sacraments of the Church. The CCA teaches the Catholic faith with a loving regard for all humanity based on intelligent, modern positions on social issues. We celebrate all, regardless of race, color, gender, or sexual orientation or preference, nationality, and socioeconomic status.
