Our Monastic Katholikon
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
Our journey will always be Christ-centered and, ultimately, to serve those that Christ has instructed us to serve; the poor, the infirm, the broken-hearted, the meek, the merciful, those that are just like us. We intend to inspire the people we serve by carrying out the works of the Church and offering solace to those in need of love the most.
Over the years, we have modified in distinction while maintaining its same identity and function as we transitioned to as Monastic Church body. The name formerly attributed to our Church, for us, holds a past with times of harrowing moments that can make moving forward and continuing to grow arduous. We strive to be a source of equality and social justice-minded Christianity for all of God’s children—created in their likeness. In acknowledging our history, the Monastic Council of the Orthodox Catholic Monastic Community of Saint Brigid — the governing entity of our Katholikon — brought forth, voted on, and approved the adoption of All Saints All Angels Eastern Catholic Monastery Chapel; to further facilitate our needed growth and support of our Community while maintaining an inclusive patronal identity.
All Saints All Angels will continue to serve as our proto-orthodox Katholikon, or Monastery Chapel, and continue to lead the sacramental administration of the Orthodox Catholic Monastic Community of Saint Brigid.
As the public ministry of the Monastic Community, we serve our local parishes sacramentally and assist with the needs of the communities we’re involved in. Locally, the Orthodox Catholic Monastic Community of Saint Brigid officially serves at, and with the parish of Prodigal Son Eastern Catholic Church, solidifying our joint venture of being apart of their public ministry.
Hymn attributed to All Saints:
As first-fruits of our nature to the Planter of created things,
the world presents the God-bearing martyred Saints in offering unto You, O Lord.
Through their earnest entreaties,
keep Your Church in deep peace and divine tranquility,
through the pure Theotokos, O You Who are most merciful.
Hymn attributed to All Angels:
Let us praise Cherubim, Seraphim, Thrones, Powers, Authorities
and Principalities, Dominions, Archangels and Angels,
for they are the Bodiless ministers of the Unoriginate Trinity
and revealers of incomprehensible mysteries.
Glory to Him Who has given you being;
glory to Him Who has given you light;
glory to Him Who is praised by you in thrice-holy hymns.
