Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Old Catholic Church in Italy is the Italian member church of the Union of Utrecht, which is in full communion with the Anglican Communion (so that members of both communions are permitted to receive the sacraments in one another's churches). It has parishes in Milan, Turin, Rome, Latina, Sabaudia, Reggio Calabria with missions in Florence, Pisa, Livorno, Verona, Legnago, Palermo and Catania. The Church is under the episcopal oversight of the Bishop of the Christian Catholic Church of Switzerland.

Worship

The worship of the Old Catholic Churches is much like the worship of the Anglican Church. This particular Church has mass very similar to liturgies used within the Anglican Church. The Mass though, is in Italian. It also has its similarities with the more traditional Tridentine Mass. The Priest faces the Altar, the Deacon and the Subdeacon both have active roles in the mass, and there is an Altar Rail (usually).
