The Diocese of the Holy Cross, as an diocese of the International Old Catholic Churches traditional yet relevant for today, and is open to the insights of all faiths and philosophies. This openness means that we have a unique spiritual character and appeal, and that our mission reaches beyond conventional boundaries to embrace a genuine universality.
We see our work as firmly grounded in the wish of Jesus Christ that His church strive to attain unity in the face of its differences and thus we strive to make our church’s primary goal to be an ecumenical mission church.
Our church derives its Apostolic Succession from the historic Churches of the East and West and can trace those successions through multiple lines. We have significant ties with the historic Old Catholic movement.
