Fr Mark's progressive Anglo-Catholic take on European Christianity

  • This is my collection of material about the current state of the churches in Europe. I am interested in looking at how they are dealing with the pressing issues of our time: the issues of gay people and women in ministry/ leadership are particularly pressing at the moment, as is the area of declining church attendance.

    I would like to see how Europe's traditional religious institutions are coping with the new Europe currently being forged, in which public opinion and ethical attitudes are becoming inceasingly pan-European, and are evidently presenting a series of strong challenges for the churches.

Old Catholic Church – the gay issue

Posted by Fr Mark on August 14, 2009

The Old Catholic Synod of Bishops voted in October 2003 to authorise the Liturgy Commission to draw up texts for the blessings of same-sex relationships. This overview also refers to resolutions made in Austria and Switzerland affirming gay people.
