Hi, i'm new to this group. I am 100% pinoy based in California. I've always wondered if El Shaddai was a Catholic group.

any thoughts?

Yes, El Shaddai is Catholic. I am not sure about the orthodoxy of the movement though. There had been past controversies about the group, specifically about their leader and founder.

Yes El Shaddai is 100% Catholic. In all its banner it always show the subtitle DWXI PPFI Catholic Charismatic group. It is under the Catholic church and it has priests and bishops as its Spiritual Directors. One of its objectives is to bring back Catholics who has lost their faith back to the folds of the Catholic church.

yup, the leader is not perfect, he is also a mere man subjected to commit mistakes...But it doesn't mean his group is not Catholic since they still value and practice what usual Catholics do..:-)

The Organization of ''EL SHADDAI'' was the bridge when I came back to the Catholic Church. I attended many prayer meetings locally and National anniversaries. It was a good experience. I did not became a full member. I left the church when the priests in the Philippines talk too much politics during homilies. One of the character I admired with the Servant Leader Mike Velarde is never at one time he attacked other religious organization even if others critisized him personally. A mass is held before the prayer meeting to identify it with the Catholic Church.

Yes El Shaddai is very Catholic still because they have Bishop Ted Bacani as their main spiritual director. He oversees the teachings that their preachers give to the different chapters all over. And Mike Velarde's point man in the Education Ministry of the movement is a former Catholic priest, Bro. Rey Vargas. It's true that there was a time some preachers were veering toward Protestantism (because those preachers were born again christians in the first place) but it's good the Catholic hierarchy alerted Mike Velarde about this and he acted in obedience to the bishops.

They are Catholic. Of course we cannot deny that they are the unorthodox type, yet we see Mike Velarde as a shining example of Catholic attitude.

They're Catholic!? I recall learning from a Born-Again Christian that they're not.
