The Ecumenical Catholic Church + USA
What is the Ecumenical Catholic Church + USA?
Most people are unaware that there exists many smaller Catholic Churches
throughout the world.
We are the Ecumenical Catholic Church + USA. We are a small, somewhat
new, church with long roots in the Old Catholic Church movement in the
USA. We have maintained valid apostolic succession that can be traced
back to the original Apostles and we faithfully dispense all the same seven
Sacraments and Sacramentals of the one true Holy Catholic Church.
Even as a small church, the ECC+USA is a national church having ministries
(parishes, chaplaincies, and religious institutes) in Illinois, Maine, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Nevada, Texas, Oregon, New Hampshire, and Missouri). The ECC+USA is incorporated in the State of Missouri. Our Presiding Bishop and our national offices are in Missouri. Our church website is: www.ecc-usa.org.
What is an Oratory?
An Oratory is a special place of prayer and worship. Here we enter into the
ancient traditions of the Church and yet also discover the best that is new
in liturgy, music, and art.
All of our Liturgies and programs are open to the public and we invite you
to explore if the Oratory is a place for you and your family to call home.
