Old Catholic Apostolic Church

OCAC Diocese of Europe

The Diocese of Europe embraces the nations of Europe with OCAC's churches and missions within. It also has the Ordinariate 'De Jonge Ritus'  (derived from the Young Rite of Holland) within. The Young Rite has been an instrument of God's grace for years within the Liberal Catholic movement and after going through testing times the Young Rite divided, with a substantial following based in the former Yugoslavia (Slovenia particularly) with the residual Young Rite in the homeland of the low countries joining OCAC as an ordinariate, practicing their charism and liturgy as they always have, alongside and with the clergy of OCAC. Bishop Louise Lombard is Presiding Bishop De Jonge Ritus, and we are honoured that she acts as Bishop Ordinary for OCAC's European clergy too. De Jonge Ritus Web-pages. We have respect for and co-operate with the Young Rite who are associated, but not part of our church: their website is here.
