Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
I believe in the holy catholic church, the communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting. Amen.

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Disciple's Creed

I believe in one God,
the Father, Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.
He created us in his image and likeness
And gave us dominion to all His creation
to give Him greater glory and perfection.

I believe in our Lord, Jesus the Christ,
Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,
He was born of the Virgin Mary, our World Mother.
For us men and for our salvation
He came down from heaven and gave His gospel of love,
And showed us the possibilities of men-
What He has done, all men will do;
and what He is, all men will be.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Breath and giver of Light,
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
And from whom the Substance of this universe was made;
Who was sent to us by the Son to give us Power
For us to create all the things we need.

I acknowledge the universal brotherhood of all life,
And the law of consequence governing it - which is
based on truth, justice and love.
I believe in the communion of saints, the path of perfection,
the resurrection of the bodies; And we work and look forward
for the restoration of the Divine Plan on Earth
So that all will experience the life everlasting. Amen.


Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
And Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Now and for ever.



Hail Mary,
full of grace!,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death.



Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.

Fatima Prayer

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven,
especially those most in need of Thy mercy.


Hail Holy Queen

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of mercy!
Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears!
Turn then most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Pray for us O Holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.
Oh god, whose only begotten Son,
By His life, death and resurrection,
Has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life.
Grant, we beseech Thee, meditating upon these mysteries
That we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise,
Through the same Christ, our Lord.


The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
