Descriptions of the Ecclesia Gnostica Services -- Diocesan Center

The Mystery of the Sacraments

The Ecclesia Gnostica of which Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller serves as the bishop (having been duly consecrated to that office in 1967 and having served in that capacity ever since) conducts the following regular services on a weekly and monthly basis in the Los Angeles Area.  All are welcome to attend our services and all are welcome to receive Holy Communion!

Sunday Morning Eucharist.

This service, which resembles the Mass of the Roman Catholic communion, is the supreme transformational rite of Christian Alchemy.  Regular attendance at this service advances the personal spiritual transformation of those attending in marked measure; while many have found even occasional attendance very helpful.  The service is of an average duration of one hour and fifteen minutes, and concludes with a brief homily.  Bishop Hoeller conducts the services on the majority of Sundays, with qualified Gnostic clergy substituting for the Bishop on other occasions.

Wednesday Evening Eucharist.

These intimate evening Eucharists are conducted by Gnostic clergy.  This service lasts approximately one hour and is an intimate evening Mass.

Solemn Benediction and Healing Service.

A brief devotional service to the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, followed by the sacrament of healing with anointing and laying on of hands, and Communion with the reserved sacrament.

Devotional Service to the Holy Sophia.

A singularly meaningful and magical service dedicated to the Divine Feminine.  This service is unique in our particular rite, and its likeness is not found elsewhere!

Vespers and Healing Service.

A short service of praise and devotion, using recitations from psalms and Gnostic scriptures, followed by the traditional healing service as described above.
