What does it mean to be Old-Catholic?


An Old-Catholic is a baptized Catholic Christian that:

1) Adheres to the First Seven Ecumenical Councils of the Church.

2) Professes the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed in its original formula.

3) Observes the Ancient Catholic tradition.

4) Affirms the Episcopal-Synodical Polity of the Church.

5) Understands Liturgical Worship as Ancient, Mystical and Solemn.

6) Rejects the modern Dogma of Papal Infallibility.

7) Rejects the Papal Claim to universal (Episcopal) supremacy over the Church.
