About Father Michael Messina

Father Michael Messina is affiliated with the American Catholic Communities and is the senior pastor of Divine Mercy Catholic Church in southeast Aurora. Father Michael been blessed and honored to serve at four at parishes in Wisconsin and Colorado during the last 15 years.


We are a bible based church that follows the teachings of Jesus Christ, the apostles, and the ancient Catholic Church. We celebrate in the blessing of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the sacraments which He initiated. We are not Roman Catholic. However our heritage can be traced from the Roman Catholic Church by Apostolic Succession through the Old Catholic Church, which separated from Rome in 1870. This separation was due to the newly adopted dogma of papal infallibility.

Since 1870 we have maintained our Apostolic Succession by preserving the validity of our Holy Orders and Sacraments. This has not been denied by the Roman Catholic Church. Visit this website History of the American Catholic Communities for more information about this.

The American Catholic Communities participate in what is referred to as the Convergence Movement which encompasses the Three Streams of Ministry. We are Sacramental & Liturgical which means we celebrate the historic liturgies of the Church and the seven Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Confession, Healing, Holy Orders and Holy Matrimony.

We are Evangelical which means we are committed to preaching the Gospel to fulfill the Great Commission. We are Charismatic which means we believe that through the baptism of the Holy Spirit all believers receive the gifts of the Spirit for the building up of the church and the advancement of the Kingdom of God.

May the glory of God be with you!
