RE: Ancient Catholic Church of the East

 

My dear people of God:

 

There is a group of men who present themselves as priests of the Ancient Catholic Church of the East and offer religious services in barangay chapels in Pangasinan. The group is headed by a certain Anthony Obinque of San Gonzalo, Labrador, Pangasinan.

 

The sect is not a Catholic group and contrary to their presentation, there are no steps to “unite” our Churches.

 

Please warn our Catholic faithful about their deceptive operations and consequently never to participate in their religious rites. They are prohibited from using Catholic chapels for their liturgies which simulate the Catholic rites.

 

Let this malicious group be a wake-up call for us Catholic priests to reach out to the barangay communities who truly thirst for the spiritual care of the Church and hence become vulnerable to such groups.

 

That in all things God may be glorified!

 

Sincerely yours,
