I understand now that you are the AOCC. Possibly we need to change the title of this thread? Good job catching this Tom!

In Christ,

No problem Rick. As you have probably already discovered there are scores of Acronyms in the U.S. Many groups I am convinced exist only on paper without any real ministry. I'm just a seminarian and I am involved in ministry work. I ran into one group once that had 11 Bishops, no priests, no deacons, no seminarians and no parishes. We certainly are not large but we are serious about ministry.

A comment made above by John brings to mind the fact that all of our Clergy are bi-vocational. Because we and some others like us were planted by missionary activity and then ... well forgotten we are placed in the position that we are in essence still, several decades later, essentially missions. It gives one a unique perspective to say the least.

In Peace
Tom

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!
