Our Church Administrative Structure

United Episcopal Catholic Communion

A vibrant community of churches steeped in tradition, bringing the precepts of the ancient Apostolic Churches into the new age.

The pillar of the organization is based on Independent Old Catholic, with a strong melding with an Anglican (Anglo-Catholic) Ordinate.

Our organization is open, Christ and scripture based, non judgmental and non political.

We celebrate and embrace our universal catholic heritage. We believe in and support all our christian denominations as brothers and sisters in the faith.


Anglican Apostolic Church

We are a church of the Independent Anglican (Anglo-Catholic) ethos, embracing the precepts of the articles of faith, liturgies and traditions of the Anglican faith. We practice our faith as a ordinate of the UECC, and operate under a small set of common canons. None the less we operate as an autonomous organization.

The organization practices Low, Broad and High Church. This melding of practices and liturgies allows parishioners the opportunity to praise the Lord in an environment that fits into their personal relationship with the divine.

We are a welcoming and inclusive community of churches in the ancient traditions. All faiths are welcome to come celebrate with us.

St. Genevieve Apostolic Church

The home church of the Presiding Archbishop. We avidly support the historical Ecumenical Councils, and the practices of the ancient churches of the Apostles.

Independent Old Catholic, we accept the practice of Low and High Mass equally. We are welcoming and inclusive to all who desire a peaceful, non judgmental environment for worship.

St. Charles Borromeo Seminary

Our seminary is custom designed for the organization to fit the requirements of our faith and practices.

Curriculum revolves around prayer, faith, the word, the church fathers, ethics and the practice of our faith.

Seminarians will choose to follow either the Independent Old Catholic tract or the Anglican (Anglo-Catholic) tract.

Message from the Archbishop

We as a universal church are at a crossroads. Political agendas, separatist ideas and denominational differences are weakening the faith.

We must come together as one; Put our differences aside, learn from each churches uniqueness and come together as one voice within the faith.

The church has become the judge and jury of individualistic moral precepts. This cannot continue. The church and it's presbyters are counselors of the masses. Only our Lord and Savior is the judge of right and wrong at the end of days.

The church must be open, must not be judgmental, must cure it's internal issues and must strive to bring the masses together is true fellowship.

Our priesthood must also bear the burden of change, remembering that the priesthood is a calling and not a business. We all must be priests for the right reasons, serve our Lord as he so commanded and remove from ourselves the shackles of our secular distractions.



Together We Are Strong

In our world today, the after effects of past adversities have engulfed our faith. Rampant denominationalism, schisms, abuse of power, intolerance and general hypocrisy have undermined the very foundations of the church universal. We truly empathize with of fellow clergy who desire nothing more than to bring our faith to the people humbly and to the best of their abilities within their calling.

Clergy: have you been in a position of abuse or misuse by other organizations? Tired of the rhetoric, church politics and secular politics eroding your faith? Tired of rampant intolerance, bigotry and general misbehavior? Wish to find shelter from the insanity that seems to be prevalent in many organizations today? If you wish to talk, feel free to contact us. We promise to listen to your needs with due respect.

There are many clergy who practice the faith as a calling, and NOT a business. They strive to do what is right, not hindered by rules prescribed by humans, rules not prescribed by the divine. Congregations desire to meet in true fellowship, without being harassed by those who wish to make their individual "differences" a public issue.

For those of the presbytery and congregations who have found themselves disenfranchised from the mainstream or simply looking for others who wish to serve the faith in peace and fellowship, consider coming together.

Our Lord willing, we can make a difference. 



Food for Thought

Food for Thought - We are Servants
The word “deacon” is derived from the Greek words diakonia, service, and diakonos, variously translated as servant, helper, attendant, or minister. A priest or bishop should never forget that they are a deacon in heart and soul, that is their first priority and calling. Serve, help and attend to the needs of others. Lastly to minister the word. Minister by speaking the words with no interpretation, Jesus made it clear that he spoke in parables as we (and even the disciples) could never comprehend. Speak the word, do not judge (a sin), aid the infirm, poor, elderly and all in great need. Many churches have diverted from this simple process, whether for imagined power or real financial gains.
This church follows the premise of deaconship without exception or question. It is right to do so by the words we all know are true.


The mission of the United Episcopal Catholic Communion is multi faceted. The outcome of our mission is to provide the solace of the Christian Faith to all. Our mission does not recognize limiting factors to participate in the blessings of the church, including but not limited to; Race, Creed, Color, National Origin, Orientation, Marital Status or social standing.

We seek out those who may no longer receive the solace of the church; Disenfranchised, Shut-ins, Lost the church of choice or other limitations that deny access to the faith.

While we fully support the parish structure, we do not shun the need to bring the solace of the church to remote locations, or into the homes of those in greatest need.

The organization is structured in two distinct entities - An Independent/Old Catholic Organization and an Anglican/Anglo Catholic Organization. 

The Independent Catholic entity is based on the ancient church, and we follow the precepts of the Union of Utrecht, and other Independent Catholic entities. We follow the main traditions of the Apostles, and operate as a true catholic (universal) church. We desire to remain aloof of the issues of the Great Schism,  Pastor aeternus, Lumen gentium, Papal magisterium or any politicizing of the church.

The Anglican/Anglo-Catholic entity operates under the precepts of the the 39 Articles and embraces the High, Low and Broad Church operations. 

Both sections of the Communion are members of the Anglican Free Communion (Also known and the Episcopal Free Communion) based in the United Kingdom.

Our organization declines to operate as a business. The desire to own large tracts of property, have extravagant church assets, dabble in the stock market with church finances or other business practices is not within the purview of our direction, beliefs or canons. Each priest or parish is allowed to act as a semi autonomous entity, to operate with their own funds as they so desire.

Our organization is proud to follow the ancient practices of both denominations. The members of the UECC practice much the same as the ancient churches of Antioch, Jerusalem and Alexandria. Many of the rubrics and other practices of the modernized church universal have their place, that not withstanding we desire to practice the faith as did the Apostles and the early Church Fathers.
