The Ordinariate/Sanctuary of Divine Providence
Ascension Alliance for Spiritual Renewal,
a progressive, independent Catholic jurisdiction.
Most Rev. Theodore Feldmann, Bishop and Pastor
Welcome to the web presence of the Ordinariate/Sanctuary of Divine Providence! We are members of the Ascension Alliance for Spiritual Renewal, an Independent Catholic jurisdiction. Independent Catholic churches are churches not in communion with Rome or Eastern Orthodoxy, but with valid Apostolic Succession. While some are traditionalist, Ascension Alliance is consciously liberal. We treasure the sacraments and the wisdom of the great Christian mystics and theologians but do not force our views on anyone or insist on obedience to particular dogmas. Instead, we strive to help all those on the spiritual journey, encouraging them to decide for themselves what they believe in regard to ultimate truth.
We hold up love as the guiding principle and affirm that the sacraments are channels of grace which connect us to the deep love and energy of the living Christ. We welcome all people including those often on the margins of other religious organizations.
