The St James Declaration

The Order of Antioch and the Ecclesia Apostolica Divinorum Mysteriorum, two ecclesiastical communions of the Abbey-Principality, have issued the St James Declaration. This document states clearly our position on certain aspects of the independent sacramental movement, particularly relating to Holy Orders, and defines our communions as regards Old Catholicism and Liberal Catholicism. The Declaration further outlines the basis for ecumenical relations with other communions. It is intended to avoid any misunderstanding as to our stance on these matters in the mind of others, as well as to distance ourselves from a number of practices that we regard as unacceptable.
