The Universal Catholic Church exists to serve Christ--on his throne of glory in heaven, in the most holy sacrament of the altar, and in the hearts of faithful people everywhere. It is a self-governing body, independent from the Church of Rome, with apostolic succession through the Old Catholic Church of Holland and following the traditions and rites of the Liberal Catholic Church established in Great Britain in 1916. The Church is called Universal Catholic because its outlook is both universalist and catholic; it combines the Catholic form of worship—its stately ritual, its deep mysticism, and its abiding witness to the reality of sacramental grace—with a wide measure of intellectual liberty and respect for the individual conscience. The crippling fear of God’s wrath, the attitude of abject self-degradation, and the haunting fear of eternal hell are foreign to Universal Catholic thought. We believe that such beliefs are contrary to the image of a loving Heavenly Father revealed by Christ in the Gospels.
Our chapel is called All Souls because it was founded on November 2, 2014, the Feast of All Souls, as a reorganization of St. Clement's parish, established in Collin County in 1999. Our mission: serving all souls, remembering all souls.
We gather together to grow in holiness. St. Clement of Alexandria (c. 150-215) wrote: “The Logos of God became man so that you may learn from man how man may become God.” The Christian life, therefore, is one of theosis, of becoming more and more like our Teacher, Jesus Christ, whose divine personage is archetypal, revealing the human face of God. Salvation is a process, not a product. Join us in our journey through worship and mutual affection .
“His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life. . . that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature.” 2 Peter 1:3-4
