Prince of Peace Independent Catholic Community

Embrace your Catholic Heritage
In a Welcoming and Inclusive Environment
Saint Benedict said: "All are to be welcomed - as Christ." In
keeping with this teaching Prince of Peace is an independent catholic
community dedicated to the inclusion of all.
We seek to promote Christ's Gospel of Love and to teach Love through word and action.
We reach out to all who seek healing from the effects of predjudices toward race,
gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, living situation, gender
identification, cultural exclusiveness, or heritage.
Prince of Peace is catholic church that is indepndent of the Vatican and not part of the
Roman Catholic church. Our clergy are ordained in Valid Apostolic Succession through
Old Catholic, Roman Catholic and Orthodox lines of succession.
Our community was formed in 2004 from the membership of an Old Catholic parish
who’s bishop had moved out of state. We offer all of the traditional catholic sacraments
including Baptism, Confession and Marriages (for both same-gender and different gender couples).
As in the very early days of Christianity, Prince of Peace follows the concept of a "Home Church", meaning we do not have a physical church location.
Our community meets for mass every Sunday at the homes of our members in various locations around Long island.
Whether you are married, divorced, gay, lesbian, transgendered, abused by a
religious leader or simply seeking a welcoming and inclusive sacramental church community,
we welcome you to join us.

You're Always Welcome Here!
