OUR MISSION


St Praxedis Catholic Community is an inclusive, Christ centered community led by a woman priest and functioning within the Roman Catholic tradition. We are an inclusive language community, welcoming all to the Eucharistic table. One need only come with an open heart. We are drawn together by this common mission:


“To build and nurture an active, fully sacramental Catholic community, to affirm diversity, to model a renewed priestly ministry and priestly people and to become Spirit empowered through prayer and a partnership model of leadership. We aim to provide opportunities for exploration and expression of faith, for spiritual growth and to put our faith into practice.”


By the example of our patron, St. Praxedis, enslaved woman and bishop of a second century house church in ancient Rome, we proclaim that identity or adversity are no impediment to doing the work of the Gospel. Through our worship services, we witness to the justice, equality and compassion preached by Jesus and to the example of Jesus’ healing and reconciling love for all. In this way we are encouraged to live the Gospel life.
