“God is light, and in him there is no darkness ....”
[1 Juan 1:5]
Welcome to the Santo Niño Old Roman Catholic Diocese website! The Old Roman Catholic Church descended from the Roman Catholic See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy by the Holy See in 1145.
One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One Church Churches that remain united to the Catholic Church by means of the closest bonds of Apostolic Succession and a valid Eucharist are true particular Churches based on Dominus Jesus, the Declaration of the Holy See by then-Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now-Benedict XVI, Pope emeritus) and Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone under the then-Pontificate of His Holiness John Paul II.
We hope you will find the information and resources you need in this website. But with our commitment to serving the Lord and the people entrusted to our pastoral stewardship, feel free to explore our ministries around the world. We can worship with you in whatever circumstances you are in, particularly in your joys and sorrows. We hope to serve and witness, following the Great Commission from our Lord Jesus Christ!
Life is a faith journey, and we would like to be of service to you and your family!
