2022 - Seems odd to type that, but welcome to the new year - 2022, The past year has been a challenge for the world with Covid 19 taking sickness and death worldwide. Our prayer is that this terrible plague will soon die out.
The IOCC continues to grow, and we are handling new applications for ordination virtually weekly. The Lord is blessing our work, and it is you the clergy who are doing this work for the Lord. We thank you!
Ther IOCC has been reorganized with all clergy now part of a geographical Diocese under a Bishop. We encourage local clergy meetings.
May the Lord bless you this new year, and may you be well and safe.
Bishop George, Primate
The Independent Old Catholic Church
We welcome you to the web site of the Independent Old Catholic Church (IOCC). Our denomination traces its roots through the European Old Catholic Churches to the Apostolic Era. Of particular concern to us is the offering of valid sacraments to those in need. We offer traditional sacraments and beliefs found in the traditions and beliefs of the Early Christian Church. We are worldwide with Clergy in North America, and Europe. We are seeking mature adults who feel a call to Holy Orders (Deacon/Priest) and those who are already ordained and seek to incardinate with the IOCC. We welcome those who are self-sustained, as we pay no salaries to our Clergy, who like St Paul, pay their own way. We offer seminary training (leading to degrees in Theology) and offer ordination to both men and women.
We are a rather unique Church offering priesthood to suitable candidates for part time work, or full time. We hold valid apostolic succession and welcome you to, with prayer, consider preparation for Ordination.
Please take to review our web site, and if you feel a call contact us for more information or a phone conversation.
