Congratulations, Fr. Ron!

CCOA has a new priest! Fr. Ron was ordained on August 5, 2017 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Congratulations, Bishop Ann!

Presiding Bishop Mark Newman and Bishop Linda Rounds-Nichols, acting on behalf of Archbishop Leon Hunt of the United Kingdom, ordained the Rev. Elizabeth Ann Bryan to the episcopal order, sub conditione on June 25, 2016.

Bishop Ann was left without a jurisdiction when her former Presiding Bishop died. She turned to Archbishop Leon since he and her former bishop had known each other during the time that Archbishop Leon lived in the United States. Archbishop Leon accepted her into the Autocephalous Catholic Church of Antioch of the United Kingdom.

Although she lives in the United States, Bishop Ann remains under the UK jurisdiction of the Church, answerable directly to Archbishop Leon. The UK and US branches of the Catholic Church of Antioch are in full intercommunion.
