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. We have respect for and co-operate with the Young Rite who are associated, but not part of our church. We also have the religious community of the Good Shepherd within the Low Countries - Gemeenschap van de Goede Herder - and whilst not an ordinariate, are a semi-autonomous order within OCAC's Diocese of Europe.
