A Renewed Partnership
On October 7, 2019, the Old Roman Catholic Church (English Rite) and the Old Roman Catholic Church in Great Britain re-affirmed their commitment to unity and established a formal intercommunion under the title of The Old Roman Catholic Union. This is notable as both churches descend from Archbishop Arnold Harris Mathew and were previously unified during the time of Archbishops Wilfred Barrington-Evans and Robert Alfred Burns. The churches lost contact circa 1974 but with the establishment of the Old Roman Catholic Union they have agreed to again partner together to build up the Body of Christ. Signing the document were Archbishops from each church which included Floyd Kortenhof, Douglas Lewins, and William Myers.
