Controversies Surrounding The Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement

There are a few controversies surrounding the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement, and the church has answered to a few of them.
They include:
- The Catholic attached to their name: With so many people asking if the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement is related to the Roman Catholic Church, we have gotten a simple answer to that. According to the denomination, the name 'Catholic' simply means 'Universal'. This means that there are not any restrictions to the usage of the name.
- The denomination's mode of worship: They do not make use of bands and some other music instruments, and I'm pretty sure the members are ok with that. 
- The dressing code of the members: Wherever you see a Watchman , whether the youth in a campus or the adults elsewhere, you can easily pick them out. Thanks to their unique mode of dressing. They do not use make-ups, jewelries and the other accessories.
- Their pattern of wedding ceremonies: They do not use the big wedding gowns and wedding cakes, neither do they do the other things so many others do like pre-wedding photos. They have reasons for that too and should be respected. Trust me, if the members weren't ok with it, there wouldn't have been any weddings in the church.
