Welcome to the Old Catholic Institute
The Old Catholic Institute is an ecumenical distance-learning school preparing individuals for ordination and continuing Christian Education, and is sponsored by the Old Catholic Churches International. We welcome all progressive Christian churches to take advantage of our training program. We offer practical training for clergy that will serve them well in the real world.
The Church and Institute makes no claim of academic accreditation of any kind, nor is it implied. The Church provides an online distance learning study program, and practical training is delivered at a parish level to meet the needs of churches.
The Institute endeavors to provide an equivalent to Seminary Degree’s in the following areas of study: Theology, Christology, Dominican Studies, Franciscan Studies, Philosophy of Religion, and Liturgical Practices. “Certificates of Competency” are conferred upon completion of any course. We offer this as a gift to the Church by preparing qualified Men and Women to serve her to the Glory of Christ.
Studies are offered as Oxford-style tutorials on an ongoing basis. All studies are competencies-based. An assessment of prior learning begins the process.
