Lord of Compassion Ministries is a small, contemporary Christian fellowship of believers. We help those who have been wounded find wholeness and holiness by means of sacramental expression.
John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.”
But Jesus said, "Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us." Mk 9:38-40 & Lk 9:49-50
The people of God who come to us are post-Catholics; raised in the sacramental traditions of the Roman, Orthodox, Anglican-Episcopal churches and still cherish the path of those mysteries.
They are post-Protestants with mainstream Christian backgrounds as well as post-Evangelicals whose knowledge and love for the Scriptures have developed in them the urge to delve into deep, mystical union with the Divine while remaining rooted in Christianity.
Many more are post-New Age followers who possess an understanding of metaphysics and New Thought philosophies and now seek a deeper understanding of the Christ and the fullness of faith.
“I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.” Jn 10:16
We have created this website to briefly explain our beliefs and practices. Lord of Compassion Ministries welcomes everyone to our services, both those who have faith and those who have lost faith.
The spiritual practices of Lord of Compassion Ministries were inspired by the traditions and prayers of the early Celtic Christians. With biblical support, we have incorporated this ancient expression of Christian worship into our Eucharistic celebration, and as a way of life. In recognizing the image of the Creator in the temporal beauty of creation, it is easy to recognize the Divine in ourselves as well. We are confident that the joy of this Celtic spirit in our Celebration of Word and Sacrament will renew and enliven your faith.
The Rites of Baptism, Reconciliation, Communion, Confirmation, Matrimony, Anointing of the Sick, and Holy Orders are offered to all who claim Jesus as the Anointed One of God: Savior, Redeemer, High Priest of all humankind. In the Western Church, these celebrations are referred to as sacraments
and in the Eastern Church they are called mysteries
. These rites
are your right
- gifts from Jesus celebrated as outward signs of inward grace, and all have basis in Scripture as well as Christian Tradition.
