Angelicism, officially the Holy Catholic and Episcopal Church of All Angels is a form of Christianity found throughout post-deluge North America. The HCECAA was founded by theologian Joseph Walsh in 62 P.D. in what is now Baltimore, Columbia. Angelicism puts a focus on angelic beings, deeming them to be the ones to enact God’s will and carry out his commands.

History and Beliefs Edit

Beliefs Edit

It is believed that Angels are near humans in terms of population, and that each Angel is assigned to a specific individual for the duration of the mortal’s lifetime. When the mortal dies, both the Angel and the human are judged by God, with separate criteria; if the Angel is deemed righteous, it is granted access into Heaven, and should the contrary be true, Hell. On the other hand, the recently deceased human is to become an Angel should they be deemed pious, while they are to spend time laboring off their sins in Purgatory if deemed not sufficiently pious.

Founding Edit

Joseph Walsh published the text The Purpose of Angels in God's Kingdom in 62 P.D. in which he laid out the concepts of Angels enacting out God's commands. Walsh also elevated the Seven Archangels as beings worthy of worship to connect and speak to God.
