Divine Litugy
we follow the Johannine Tradition of "listening for the heartbeat of God" in all things. The Liturgies we use in our Services hopefully reflect that in the mixture of Celtic and Orthodox material. With the Liturgies ranging from ancient to modern, we have endeavoured to create a Missal suitable for use within Celtic, Celtic Orthodox, Gallic and Catholic Apostolic communities.

What Gives Me Hope From him come the scriptures, chants, and prayers,
Religious rites and sacrificial gifts;
From him come work, time, and givers of gifts,
And all things under the sun and moon.

From him come the gods of the natural world,
Men, beasts, and birds, and food to nourish them;
From him come all spiritual disciplines,
Meditation, truth, faith, and purity.

After doing, listen.
