Pantokrator Catholic Community is a Private Association of Faithful in the genre of the New Communities. It was founded in 1990 by André Luis Botelho de Andrade in Campinas, SP where it is still based. We were granted canonic approval as a Private Association of Faithful in November 2000 by the then Archbishop of Campinas Dom Gilberto Pereira Lopez.
In our Community, men and women in all states of life consecrate themselves to God through the El Shaddai-Pantokrator Charism and devote their lives to the service of the Kingdom of God rooted in the grace of Christ’s Church.
Pantokrator is the Greek translation of the Hebrew El Shaddai which means the Almighty, the Lord of All Things, the One Who Governs All Things.
