Old Catholic Apostolic Church
St. Adalbert Home Oratory


Even with relaxed medical restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the St. Adalbert OCAC Home Oratory does not currently perform religious services in a congregational setting. In addition, no donations are needed or accepted, as it is not an incorporated charity or non-profit. Instead, St. Adalbert OCAC suggests donating, generously and repeatedly if you can, to the Southeast Texas Food Bank. (See the link in the left column.)


Deacon Marti recites Vespers on Saturday night at 6 PM, USA central time. A monthly requiem is recited on the last Saturday of the month. Use the link below to request a name be added to the altar memorial book. Veterans, and especially supporters of Veterans For Peace, are encouraged to reply. Please only e-mail a name: no birthdays, deathdays, military service numers; God knows these but hackers don't need to. The religion of the departed is of no consequence, and there is no fee for this. Donate to a food bank.


"For some there is no memory, and they perished as though they hadn't existed. These have become as though they hadn't been born, they and even their children after them. But these were compassionate people whose righteous deeds haven't been forgotten." Sirach 44:9,10


Marti was originally ordained into the Minor Orders of the Liberal Catholic Church International at the St. Thomas Cathedral in New York City in 2005 and 2006. He completed the full course of theological study, both Lay and Pastoral, at the St. Alban Seminary between 2005 and 2009. From 2009 to 2020 he participated with liberal Christians in the UUA in both Washington, DC and Texas.
