Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica (E.G.C.), the Gnostic Catholic Church, is the ecclesiastical arm of O.T.O. It confers sacraments including the eucharist of the Gnostic Mass, baptism, confirmation, and ordination.
The ecclesiastical body of Company of Stars Encampment is the “Khaos Sanctuary”, the operative expression of our local clergy and laity. The Sanctuary baptizes and confirms individuals into the laity, confers diaconal orders on qualified ordinands, and hosts sacerdotal ordinations. The Sanctuary serves to administer and celebrate the rites of Ecclesia
Gnostica Catholica (E.G.C.) or the Gnostic Catholic Church— the ecclesiastical arm of Ordo Templi Orientis. The E.G.C. is a Thelemic religious environment, dedicated to the advancement of Light, Life, Love, and Liberty through alignment with the Law of Thelema.
The central activity of the E.G.C. is the celebration of the Gnostic Mass, as set forth in Liber XV, composed by Aleister Crowley in 1913.
Lay membership in E.G.C. is available through baptism and confirmation. Members of II° and higher are eligible for ordination as Deacon, and those who have reached K.E.W. are eligible for ordination as Priest or Priestess. Rites of affiliation in E.G.C. are public ceremonies.
