A Modern Monastery of the
Conciliar Catholic Church

The mission of Society of All Saints Hospitallers is to provide sacramental and charitable services to those in need, without the discriminatory practices that has plagued the Christian church. We believe in being “in the world and not of the world.”

 

 

Since our foundation, we have practiced the best ways to evangelize is to:

Provide sacramental access

Promote spiritual and mental health

Give importance to social and educational works

We also focus on other ad hoc services to the community, in particular to those who have been marginalized by “traditional” Christian churches. These marginalized members include those who are divorced, the LGBTQ community, and women who are called to holy order vocation.

Who We Are

Our members are working in a domestic church located in residential communities where the members can make the most impact. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, religious organization that has been a foundational community for progressive reformist Catholics in San Diego, CA for more than two years now.

Instilling Hospitality Through God

What is a “hospitaller”? One word can summarize it: hospitality. God's two greatest commandments are to love Him and love others. To love everyone equally is a true sign of our love for God and our desire to live Christ-like.

Hospitality, as what has been said by many scholars, is a life and death concept in the Middle Eastern context. We would say, hospitality (i.e. the care for our neighbors; their feeding; their clothing; their being treated as we would like to be treated) is also a life and death concept.

To be hospitable means to be kind, to be generous and/or to offer generous and friendly welcome to visitors and strangers. (i.e. our neighbors). It is a genuine way to show love for others!

Hospitality as Described in the Bible

Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:40 that whatever we do for the least of people, we do for Him. According to the prophet Ezekiel, the real “guilt” of Sodom was the fact that, although they had “pride, an excess of food, and prosperous ease,” they “did not aid the poor and needy” and were “haughty” (Ezekiel 16:49-50).

 

Similarly, the letter to the Hebrews warns Christians: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it” (Hebrews 13:2). When you read more about the role of hospitality in the Bible, you will see that it is the core of being a real Christian.

 

Real Christians are not known for their ability to spout Bible verses “for even the devil knows the Scriptures,” but rather how they treat the least, lowly, and marginalized. “See how they love one another” is a basic Christian value that has been usurped in many circles calling themselves “Christian.”

 

“You will know them by their fruits,” and we hope that the fruit that we produce here in our society will show life and love giving hospitality to those we encounter and serve in our ministries.
