||Come in! The Church is Open!
Thank you for visiting us here at the Church of Jesus the King - God Bless you, you are most welcome! The Church of Jesus the King is an international catholic and ecumenical community. We strive to live out our Christian vocations in all areas and levels of modern life. We try to be open, welcoming, compassionate, serious, and committed. We want to consider ourselves to be progressive, experimental, and yet fundamentally traditional and truly catholic.
The Church of Jesus the King is part of the large family of independent Latin American Episcopal Churches that trace their history back to Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa, and his setting up of the Brazilian Catholic Church in 1945. Our history also goes back to Bishop Salomao Barbosa Ferraz, an Anglican (formerly Presbyterian) minister, who worked for Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation in the 1920s and 1930s. He was made a Catholic Bishop by Carlos Duarte Costa in 1945, and was recieved into the Roman Catholic Church as an old man.
The Church of Jesus the King was founded within this Latin American Church tradition in 1978, in the midst of the resistance to the Military Dictatorship in Argentina. We are grounded therefore in Liberation, Resistance, and Free Catholicism. The Church's founder, Archbishop Romulo Antonio Braschi, still heads the movement, and is spritual father to communities in Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, United Kingdom, and USA.
|Province of the British Isles - What you will find here
Well, first of all you'll realise that we are just building and updating this site - bear with us! This will shortly become the site of the Province of the British Isles of the Catholic Apostolic Charismatic Church of "Jesus the King", approved and ratified by Archbishop Braschi in Buenos Aires on 12 December 2005. We are in the process of adding photos, prayers, items of news and interest. Look out for our events and services. While we try to do everything with the maximum of love, we are doing it with the minimum of computer know-how!
News! This year, 2006, Archbishop Braschi celebrates 40 years of priestly ministry and 8 years since his consecration as a bishop - warmest congratulations to him! The British Isles Province meanwhile looks forward to its First Birthday on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
