Old Catholic History

Holy Trinity belongs to a growing communion of  Historically Orthodox Old Catholic Churches that believe and practice the Apostolic, Orthodox Catholic faith of the ancient, undivided Church.

It has the same heritage as

  • the Eastern Catholic Churches (Eastern Orthodox) and
  • the Western Catholic Church (Roman Catholic)

but it is ecumenical in that it believes in working closely with all Christians to introduce Jesus Christ to our modern/post modern world.
