CCDS and the PRINCIPALITY of ZUGESBUCHT



THE PRINCIPALITY OF ZUGESBUCHT

AND

CONGREGATIO CATOLICA SINE DOGMA



CONGREGATIO CATOLICA SINE DOGMA (CCSD)

(The Catholic Congregation Without Dogma) (CCSD) is a congregation founded in 1995 by some ULC ministers and it is led by a Prince-Cardinal, His Royal Eminence, The Prince-Cardinal Michael. The ULC stands for The Universal Life Church, and if you would like to be an ordained minister you should visit ULC. As a congregation of ULC we only believe in that which is right and every member of CCSD also has the right to interpret what is right for themselves. But CCSD follows the Catholic Church's model.

THE PRINCIPALITY OF ZUGESBUCHT

is a principality of the church ruled by the Prince-Cardinal. Therefore it could be compared with the Vatican. The Principality actually exsists and is situated in the historic Highland County of Caithness in Scotland. The Prince-Cardinal is also a Laird of Camster.
