Welcome to Guardian Angels Catholic Community
Guardian Angels Catholic Community
1701 S. College Ave
Tempe AZ 85281
Come and join us in the celebration of Mass every Sunday evening at 5:00pm. We Are a Community of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC) which is an outgrowth of the Old Catholic Church in Utrecht, Netherlands, and is independent of papal jurisdiction.
Share Your Gifts
Recognizing that we are all children of God, we practice the hospitality of Jesus toward all: women, men, youth, seniors, indigenous peoples, sexual minorities, families, married, partnered, and singles. Honoring the talents and calling God has seen fit to bestow on each of us, we are invited and encouraged to fully participate in the ministerial and sacramental life of the Church.
We Practice Christ's Message of Love, Peace and Forgiveness
Our community believes that Christ calls each of us in a special way to follow him and that our response cannot be hindered by unnecessary rules and regulations. We have returned to practices of the early church such as optional celibacy for clergy, ordination of women at all levels of ministry, rejection of violence, and the participation of all faith members in the calling of clergy.
We challenge ourselves to make a difference in society and work towards building peace at every level. We honor the holiness of work and family life and respect the conscience of couples in family planning. Our doors are open to those who have experienced divorce and have remarried and welcome them to join us in the full sacramental life of the Church.
