The Ecumenical Catholic Church+USA is
an Alternative Catholic Community in the Apostolic Tradition
that celebrates the SEVEN Sacraments,
and the Sacred Liturgy of the Eucharist (Mass).
and honors Mary and the Saints within the Catholic FAITH tradition.

We invite former RCC priests, seminarians,
and lay men and women with Religious Education backgrounds
and any persons who may be interested in ministry in this Church
to contact our Presiding Bishop at

Holy Orders (diaconate, priesthood, episcopacy)
are open to both men and women.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have the financial
nor the personnel resources to expand our jurisdiction
beyond the United States of America.
