This site is dedicated to the traditional Anglican expression of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We profess the orthodox Christian Faith enshrined in the three great Creeds and the Seven Ecumenical Councils of the ancient undivided Church. We celebrate the Seven Sacraments of the historic Church. We cherish and continue the Catholic Revival inaugurated by the Tractarian or Oxford Movement. Not tepid centrist Anglicanism.

The Union of Scranton
The Union of Scranton, the fellowship of orthodox and canonical Old Catholic Churches, has a new website...
Let us recall the Bonn Agreement of 1931, by which the Church of England, and subsequently, the Churches of the Anglican Communion, entered into full sacramental communion with the Old Catholic Union of Utrecht, the precursor of the Union of Scranton.
- Each Communion recognises the Catholicity and independence of the other, and maintains its own.
- Each Communion agrees to admit members of the other Communion to participate in the Sacraments.
- Intercommunion does not require from either Communion the acceptance of all doctrinal opinion, sacramental devotion or liturgical practice characteristic of the other, but implies that each believes the other to hold all the essentials of the Christian Faith.

Bishop Vaughan, who is rector of St Patrick's Church in Titusville, Florida, will serve the Diocese of the Eastern United States, a diocese that embraces over a dozen parishes in the southeastern part of the country.
Prior to his consecration, Bishop Vaughan was presented with a hand made crozier, one that had been created by a member of St Stephens church. The crozier features a carved shamrock. The Shamrock is representative of Bishop Vaughan's Irish heritage. It is also a symbolic means whereby which Celtic priests have traditionally explained the Trinity.
Following his consecration, St Stephens hosted a wonderful reception.
People from several jurisdictions attended the service.The Ven. Guy P. Hawtin preached the sermon at the Consecration of Fr. John Vaughan, Bishop-elect of the Diocese of the Eastern United States, Wednesday in the First Week After Easter, April 18th, 2012.

2012 APA Appeal Update
Dear Family in Christ,
I just wanted to let you all know about the ongoing progress with regard to the Lenten Appeal. First, let me express my personal thanks for all of you who have done so much to promote this worthwhile cause to your congregations and for all those who have contributed so generously to this effort. As of today (Friday, April 20) the provincial treasurer has received contributions from 13 churches as well as a number of individuals. Our total to date is around $33, 0000!!! Praise be to God!! We are almost there and of course would like to hear from all our parishes and missions. Please encourage your parish treasurers to forward the monies collected to our Provincial Treasurer, D. J. Fulton as soon as they are able.
Please continue to pray for these efforts, especially that we might indeed meet our target of $40,000, but also that we might complete the transaction without long delays and complications.
God bless you all for taking up this endeavor so enthusiastically. Please also continue to pray for all our foreign churches and global partners.
Remembering that in all things, He is able. I remain faithfully yours,
Fr. David Haines
Vicar General for Global Partnerships, APA
