Catholic Apostolic Church

Catholic Apostolic Church (26 Feb 2006)

Daisy Ainsley Grabsky’s report on the 19th century Catholic Apostolic Church appears in The Eynsham Record 16, 1999 pages 5-9.

‘The Church... had its own in-built self-destruct mechanism. Only Apostles could ordain Angels (Bishops). And only Angels could ordain Priests. As the original Apostles died off, they could not be replaced. As the Angels died there were no replacements to appoint further Priests... Thus, when the last of the Priests died, aged 95, in 1971 the remaining members of the Church [took to] receiving the sacraments in Anglican churches.’
