  7. You: Are you religious?


 

Our differences:

1. The Catholics of our community do not accept the teaching of papal infallibility and, therefore, are independent of the pope's jurisdiction. As a result, we are not bound by some of the canons and regulations that are formulated and enforced in the Roman Catholic Church.

 2. We believe Christ is human, Son of God as all of us are Sons of God. Jesus was the greatest of the prophets and opened us a true way of living. However our parishioners are VERY free to believe Jesus or any Saint to be of divine essence. We do not want to control your faith, we only can help you to live better with your own faith, freely. We cannot dictate what you must believe in.

3. Priests and bishops are permitted to marry.

 4. Women are encouraged to be more fully involved in the ministry of the Church. As Paul wrote, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

 5. Divorced people who remarry are able to be reconciled to the church through the grace of God and, therefore, are not excluded from the sacraments. Therefore, a divorced person may remarry with the blessing of the Church.

6. The Eucharisty is not the transfiguration.The Communion is the Remembrance of what Christ had to suffer to make sure we understand his message, and we will have bread and wine on Easter in Remembrance of his teachings and what he had to suffer to transmit it to us.

7. Agnostics are welcome.


 Incardination

In the Roman Catholic Church, incardination refers to the situation of a member of the clergy being placed under the jurisdiction of a particular bishop or other religious superior. Its antonym, excardination, denotes that a member of the clergy has been freed from one jurisdiction and is transferred to another.

Both terms are derived from the Latin cardo (pivot, socket, or hinge), from which the word cardinal is also derived - hence the Latin verbs incardinare (to hang on a hinge or fix) and excardinare (to unhinge or set free).

The purpose of incardination is to ensure that no cleric, whether deacon or priest, is "freelance," without a clear ecclesiastical superior to whom he is responsible.

In the Church, a man is incardinated as the clerical subject of a diocesan bishop or his equivalent (a vicar apostolic, territorial abbot, territorial prelate, superior of a personal prelature, etc.) or of a religious order upon ordination to the diaconate: within the ordination ceremony prior to the actual sacrament of Holy Orders itself, the man places himself under a promise of obedience to his bishop or other superior within a particular church, or makes an acknowledgment of a pre-existing vow of obedience to a prior, abbot or other superior in a religious order.

Once incardinated, the cleric remains the subject of these same superiors even when ordained a priest. This incardination does not cease until the moment when that cleric is incardinated as a subject of another superior. An excardination from one diocese, for instance, does not become effective until the moment of incardination to another, so there is no gap during which the clergyman is not clearly answerable to a definitely determined superior. Incardination is dealt with in Canons 265-272 of the Code of Canon Law.

Our system is different, the parishioners choose their priest with a renewable contract. our incardination is to the parishioners

Our church does not discriminate on the basis of one's religion, socio-economic status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, ethnic, disability, gender, or age; therefore, the views expressed by the various Unitarian Christian and Interfaith resources listed on our page do not necessarily represent the views promoted by our church and outreach ministries. Our church's beliefs are best described by our statement of faith:
The Independent Catholic Unitarian Church does not recognize the Christ as God. Through the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, we have found a definitive divine revelation, example, and inspiration by which to live a just, loving, and peaceful life. Spiritual wisdom is also to be found within the bible and scriptures of other world religions, literature and poetry, philosophy and science, and the inner experience of the Spirit within the human heart.
