In our present incarnation the Apostolic Catholic Church was formed by several priests and ministers from various main line denominations who had served in the third world. They sought to recreate the vibrant radical servant churches they experienced in the mission field. The special charism of the church is service to the poor and marginalizes. We are radically committed to social and economic justice. Most of our communities are in inner city or rural areas.Our priests and deacons are encouraged to live with the population they serve. They are expected to live at the same ecomonic level as the community.
The Apostolic Catholic Church is one of the larger old catholic groups in North American. In contrast to most old catholic/ independent catholic groups the Apostolic Catholic Church has more active communities than it has clergy.
Apostolic Catholics seek to become the arms and legs of Jesus Christ on earth, reaching out to those who suffer and are ignored by the world. We choose to be servant to all, ever mindful of the example of Christ, who "did not cling to His equality with God but emptied Himself to assume the condition of a slave."
