The Celtic Church in USA (Part of Celtic Church International , former Unity Catholic Church UCC)
In everlastingmemory of Metropolitan Archbishop Allen Lambert and his dream of one holy body of christ
The jurisdiction of the former UCC was transferred into the CCUS by the last presiding bishop of the UCC. We have no affiliations to other organisations that may call themselves UCC and these organisations have no valid succession from the former UCC. The Order of St. Sebastian was also incorporated into the CCUS by its General Abbess and Bishop protector and all its jurisdictional rights transferred to the Order of St. Columban (OOC). Any organisaton that may call itself Order of St. Sebastian has no affiliation with the Order of St. Columban and no valid appointment.
temporarely not included in CCUS or in transfer- Servants of the Good Shepherd (SGS), Order of St. Andrew, (OSA)

How strong is your faith?
Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God.
When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only one of two things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, of He'll teach you how to fly!
Has the Lord called on your heart to serve Him and His Church?
We need deacons and priests! We operate our own seminary program leading to ordination to the Deaconate and to the Holy Priesthood. Married persons are especially welcome. We are a conservative church and follow the most ancient rules in this regard which allowed for marriage of both priests and bishops. (Bishops were allowed to be married by the First Ecumenical Council in 325 AD. There were numerous married popes even after it was stopped by the Roman Church.)
This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) KJV
We are looking for men and women who are interested in a primary ministry to their community. We can set you up with a seminary program that will allow you to meet the requirements. If you are interested in this volunteer ministry, please contact us by writing a letter expressing your intentions and future plans for service to:
