If you’ve never heard about Contemporary Catholic Community before, here’s the first thing we want you to know about us…

We offer the Sacraments to all without question or judgment.

As the presence of the White Robed Monks of St. Benedict in South Africa, we at Contemporary Catholic Community strive to make the world a more compassionate place through our ministry of the Word and Sacraments. A self-governing Contemporary Catholic community in the tradition of the Old (Dutch) Catholic Church, we have a mission of service to all. The White Robed Monks are neither Roman nor Orthodox, Liberal nor Old Catholic. The White Robed Monks of St. Benedict are just┬áCATHOLIC. We appreciate that Jesus never said “No” to anyone. Therefore, in the traditional spirit of Benedictine hospitality, we welcome all who are searching for a spiritual home and offer without question or judgment the Word and Sacraments to anyone who requests them.

Many are surprised to learn that there are “other” Catholic communities. Please refer to www.wrmosb.org/mqanda.html for some Q&A’s about Catholicism and a quick overview of 2,000 years of Catholic development and links to a more detailed history.

Catholics seeking outdoor weddings or having prior marriages initially approach us because of our non-judgmental approach to weddings.

In addition to weddings we celebrate all the sacraments, offer home Masses and provide funeral services. We welcome anyone looking for a smaller community in which to practice their faith, joining our community for the celebration of Holy Mass or any of the Sacraments at one of our chapels. Our mission is to make the world a more compassionate place through a truly welcoming and dynamic Catholic community where people can connect through the Word and Sacraments with God, with others, and with opportunities to make a difference in our lives. You can think of Contemporary Catholic Community and the WRMOSB Network as a group of people “doing life together.” We are a faith community on a journey, people with a shared mission – and we hope that your life will be enriched through your involvement, so that together we can bring hope and healing to our world in these exciting times.

If you are intrigued by the approach of the White Robed Monks of St. Benedict to Catholicism we invite you to contact us for more information for a deeper look into our faith life.

Peace and Joy!

Bishop Oliver OSB
