Spiritus Christi ordains new priest Sunday
Deacon Kris Conrad will be ordained to the priesthood during the 10:30 a.m. Mass Sunday at Spiritus Christi Independent Catholic.
Spiritus Christi is at 51 North Court St., on the square in Fairfield.
Conrad’s future plans are to open an Ascension Catholic Alliance Church in the Sacramento, Calif., area.
Spiritus Christi is part of the Ascension Catholic Alliance, an alliance of Independent Catholic Churches and jurisdictions. The Alliance is part of the Independent Catholic movement, which over the last 100 years in America has been experiencing steady growth.
These church jurisdictions are fully catholic, possessing Apostolic Succession, celebrating the sacraments but are not in communion with Rome.
Spiritus Christi is an inclusive, open, affirming and welcoming community that welcomes all people without exception. It’s philosophy is, “At God’s table, all are welcome, all are fed.”
The community is welcome to attend worship and celebrate Conrad’s ordination.
