When the holy water flows over a child's head in baptism, it is believed that all sins are washed away. For devout Catholics like Guadalupe Gutierrez, baptism points to the mystery at the heart of her deep faith, the promise of eternal salvation. Because her grandchildren had not been christened as infants, Gutierrez was desperate to have them baptized and receive Holy Communion in a Catholic Church.

Giant. Awesome. Imposing. These are the words used to describe the world's most famous cathedrals--from the Middle Ages masterpiece Notre Dame de Paris to the London landmark St. Paul's. Bishop Karl Pruter has heard none of them to describe his own cathedral. Instead, he hears: tiny, cramped, curious. The Guinness Book of Records calls it the "smallest cathedral in the world." Consecrated in 1983, the one-room structure measures 15 by 17 feet and has a 7-foot-tall ceiling.

St. Matthew Church in Orange is tucked into a stucco strip mall near a chiropractic office and a submarine sandwich shop. The outside of the church is slightly bleak--with a dirty blue sign and weeds growing in the sidewalk cracks--but the inside is filled with fresh flowers, wooden carvings and familiar Catholic icons. But this isn't a Roman Catholic church. Its full name is St.

Inside and out, St. Willibrord's looks every brick and candle the ordinary neighborhood Roman Catholic church. On a sunny Sunday morning, little knots of parishioners in wool suits and Bavarian hats gather outside in the old churchyard, then move indoors, crossing themselves with holy water at an old stone font and genuflecting at pew side.

West German Old Catholics and Protestants of the Evangelical Church in Germany and the United Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany have agreed to "eucharistic fellowship," sharing in Holy Communion. Church officials called it "an important ecumenical step." The Old Catholic Church broke away from Roman Catholicism to protest its 1870 promulgation of the doctrine of papal infallibility.

The table labeled "Catholic Differences" ("Tiny St. Matthew Rattles the Roman Catholic Diocese," Nov. 28) contained inaccurate statements about the official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The source of the table was cited as "St. Matthew Old Catholic Church," with no mention of input from the Roman Catholic Church. While it is true that the Roman Church does not approve the ordination of women, it is not clear from the article that the "Old Catholic Church" ordains female priests either.

I was surprised that Caddis Robinette's mean-spirited diatribe against the Catholic Church (Letters, Feb. 7) in response to "Ireland's Other Troubles" (by Kate O'Callaghan, Jan. 3) was published. Most of us are aware of the church's blemishes, but as a convert to Catholicism, I offer a different view. It was the bad old Catholic Church that nurtured learning and founded Europe's universities. And it was through the church's influence that Western art, music and science flourished.
