Our Lady of Peace and Hope,
Mission of the Liberal Catholic Church

Welcome to All
Bishop Bennett and Friends
Welcome to Our Lady of Peace and Hope

Sunday Worship services are held every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
at The Historic Y, University and 5th Avenue in Tucson,
in the first-floor conference room.
Access the building from the University side, and follow the signs.

Plenty of parking is available on Sundays on University, on the east side of 5th Avenue
adjacent to the Historic Y building, and on the southeast side of the building.

To find the conference room where Sunday services are held, start on the University side of the building (the
north side; note that this building is addressed “300” as in 300 E. University).  Go through the gate located
between the Paolo Freire Freedom School and the Audubon Society Nature Shop, into the courtyard.  Follow
the signs through the door next to the courtyard restroom, turn left, and you’ll find the
conference room a few short steps down the hall.

The Liberal Catholic Church International, established in 1916, is in its twelfth year in Arizona at St. Michael
and All Angels Liberal Catholic Cathedral in Casa Grande, and now moves into its second year in Tucson at
Our Lady of Peace and Hope Liberal Catholic Mission.  Liberal Catholic clergy offer Holy Communion and
other Catholic sacraments to all, without barriers based on race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender or
gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, economic status, age, disability, theological viewpoint,
familial status, or issues of individual conscience.  

The Most Rev. Bennett D. D. Burke, Bishop of the Liberal Catholic Diocese of Arizona, says, “Everyone is
welcome at Our Lady of Peace and Hope, and that means everyone.  We’re very excited about our second
congregation in Arizona, where we’ll offer a traditional sacramental form of worship – with its stately ritual,
deep mysticism and witness to the reality of sacramental grace – with the widest measure of intellectual
liberty and respect for the individual conscience.  We’re also happy about our new home in They Historic Y, a
historically and architecturally significant cultural, performing arts,
and event center located in the heart of the city.”
