The Community of the Crucified One is a Non-Denominational Christian Church that was founded in the 1970’s during the charismatic movement. Our founder, Pastor, and Bishop, Edward Donovan was part of the Catholic Seminary prior to the beginning of the church. We celebrate the daily liturgy, and we also place a great importance on the Word of God, and on praise and worship. During the formation of the church, there has been influence from many different denominations and theology teachings. We welcome people from any walk of life, and our parishioners come from a multitude of denominations and religious upbringings. To learn more about the life of Bishop Edward Donovan and the history of the Community of the Crucified One, please read his book A Dummy Like Me, available at the church in Moretown.
Who is allowed to receive Communion?
We believe that the communion table is open to anyone who believes in the sanctity of the Eucharist. All are welcome.
What should I wear to a church service?
There is no dress code for church services at the Community of the Crucified One. Many members prefer to dress up a little for Sunday Mass, wearing sweaters and skirts or dress shirts and slacks. Modest dress is recommended. Come to the church in whatever you are most comfortable.
Can I bring my children?
Children of any age are always welcome, and childcare is provided for children ages 3-8 following the reading of the gospel. For information regarding the Children’s Ministry, please visit the Ministries page.
