Old Catholic Apostolic Church

St Catherine's Seminary



The link to the seminary is here.
Those studying to become clergy in our church undertake formation training with a mentor and take part in distance study. Our educational and training programs are called 'St Catherine's Seminary'. The study is thorough yet manageable and provides a strong basis for sacramental ministry in a mission setting. It is tailored to part-time and non-stipendary serving, and there is no cost to our candidates. OCAC makes no claim to connection with any other seminary or education institute and training under this program is internal for OCAC clergy or adherents only.

Candidates with existing recognised qualifications can be given credits for existing work or experience leading to exemptions where relevant for certain candidates.

Potential candidates, including those not yet part of OCAC, please enquire here: liberalcatholicsuk@gmail.com  alternatively use the application process on the Seminary website.
