Catholic Apostolic Church in North America (CACINA) is a small body of Catholic parishes that welcomes all, regardless of race, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, political beliefs, or economic status.

  1. We are followers of Jesus Christ.

  2. We serve God in our Communities.

  3. We are an independent Catholic church that worships in the Catholic tradition and celebrates the seven sacraments.

CACINA is a vibrant, faith-filled Catholic Church that came to North America from Brazil in 1949. For the past 69 years, CACINA members have sought to proclaim and authentically live the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all of God’s people. We are Catholic, sharing our history and traditions with other Catholic communities, but are independent of Roman, Orthodox, or other independent Catholic Churches. We provide the sacraments of baptism, first communion, marriage and anointing of the sick. We offer memorial or funeral services.
