Well, it's not an Eastern Orthodox Church.  Other than that, I know nothing about them, except what's on their webpage.

Any specific reason why we should have an opinion?

There are EO parishes that serve Western Rite liturgies.

We have the ROCOR western rite here in the Uk, and Fr Thomas is great man of God, and I love aatending their liturgies but they are limited to one a month.

That's more than I can attend at times.  You can go to an Anglican Catholic service to see for yourself, but, if it were me, I would make do and try to correspond with Fr. Thomas a bit more frequently to "get by" between Liturgies.

Nope. If they'd hold the Orthodox faith, they'd stop being Anglican Catholic and became Orthodox.

Hi All,

Has anyone come across the Anglican Catholic Church

I'm more of a PNCC-follower, but yes I have come across the ACC (and other Continuing Anglican denominations.)

Find out who is their bishop.  If he is not in communion with one of the canonical autocephalous Orthodox Churches, they cannot be guaranteed to hold the Orthodox faith.  Maybe they hold a part of it but if they are not in our communion no one can say which part, so it is not an option if you want to be an Orthodox Christian.

Lots of phoney Churches call themselves Orthodox.

Here is a list of the hundreds of Churches in the US that call themselves "Orthodox" many of which have no legitimacy.

Based on a quick reading of their page, this looks like classic Puseyism married to the St. Louis declaration to me.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Basically, Agabus is talking about the Oxford Movement of the nineteenth century, and the founding of Continuing Anglicanism in the 1970s.

Most of it goes like this "Anglicanism is an apostolic Church and is thus a member of the "Catholic Church" which includes itself, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy. As such, it ought to embrace its apostolic faith and be one with the other churches through smells, bells, lace, and maybe some Latin in the liturgy."

Some in the movement embraced this, others embraced Catholicism outright, like Chesterton.

Here is the Tridentine Mass done in English by Anglicans. Proof that the Tridentine can be done VERY well in English. They start here with the Angelus, then Asperges, then mass.

The only thing they continue is Anglican agony.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
