Italian National Catholic Archdiocese of the United States

The Italian National Catholic Archdiocese of the United States constitutes the Italian National Catholic Church in the United States. An autonomous Old Catholic Church and a constitutive member of the Old Catholic Confederation of the United States, we are traditional, orthodox Old Catholics continuing the living ancient tradition of the Church Catholic. As traditional Old Catholics, we understand Old Catholicism as an authentic expression of Western Orthodoxy.

 

Since the Ancient Church on the Italian peninsula was culturally Latin in the North and Greek Byzantine in the South, as Italian National Old Catholics we look to both sides of our culture in our expression of the Christian Apostolic faith in its universality.

            During this Lent, let us go into the desert of ourselves, into prayer, penance and fasting.

Bishops Issue Apostolic Exhortation on the Social Contract and the Duties of the State

January 14, 2014


The Synod of Bishops of the Old Catholic Confederation publish Apostolic Exhortation "To Heads of State and Government on the Fundamentals of Christian Social Teachings" exhorting world leaders to be mindful of the poor and the weak and their duties to the citizen. The Bishops also ask the world leaders to avoid war as much as possible by exhausting all rational and diplomatic means prior to considering military action. 

OCCUS Synod of Bishops Supports Affordable Care

Bishop de Paulo has argued that national healthcare for all citizens and residential immigrants is "a fundamental human right and expected of any civilized society." The Italian National Catholic Archdiocese of the United States and the Synod of Bishop of the Old Catholic Confederation of the United States firmly support the new legislation enacting universal healthcare by President Barack Obama since it provides for those who could not afford healthcare previously and for those with pre-existing conditions. The Bishop also said that it is the most significant social legislation since FDR's "New Deal."

The Italian National Catholic Archdiocese of the United States is the official, national metropolitan jurisdiction of the Italian National Catholic Church. We are an autonomous Christian community and a constitutive ecclesial member of the Old Catholic Confederation (OCC), a union of traditional, orthodox Old Catholic dioceses.
