About Us


Ancient faith for the modern World

  We are an independent Old Catholic Church that worships in the Catholic tradition and celebrates the seven sacraments.

We welcome Christians of all traditions and all people of good will to join us in our service to others and our worship.

We invite you to learn more about us by exploring our website.

Our communities and ministries are committed to preach the good news of the Gospel in the world. Following the example of the first fathers of the church (Acts 11, 26, John 8, 12) 

The Old Catholic Church is a constituent member of the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ, which unites all Christians throughout the world and history, and which is above all denominations (1 Corinthians 3, 5-17, John 10, 11, Matthew 28, 16-20, Revelation 5, 5-10).

We adhere faithfully to the Sacred Scriptures, to the declarations and ecumenical formulas of the Universal Church, made by the Councils of Nicea, Constantinople, Ephesus and Chalcedon, and doctrine and norms of the Declaration of Utrecht (Holland) of the year 1889.

  • We are in spiritual communion with all believers who worship the Father in spirit and truth as Jesus, our Teacher, taught us (John 4:23).
  • Our bishops, priests and deacons can be married or single as it was in the first centuries of the church. Celibacy is optional or us.
  • We celebrate the seven sacraments.
  • We venerate the Holy Mary Mother of God and the Saints.
  • We pray for the bishops, patriarchs, primate and leaders of the church and the world.
  • We are an essentially missionary diocese.

We celebrate and preach in every place and for every occasion.
