Celtic Christian Clergy

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


For the sake of simplicity, living Celtic Christian clergy might be divided into two groups: those who are actively engaged in ministry, and those who are not (e.g., due to retirement, leave of absence, or the suspension of their ministry). The necrology below contains the names of clergy who have served the Celtic Christian movement and preceded us to everlasting life.

For clergy: All information here comes from publicly-available sites. Clergy of the Independent Sacramental Movement (ISM) believe in the indelible character of the sacrament of Holy Orders (Ps. 110:4) and in the importance of the apostolic succession they received. If you were ordained and/or consecrated in the ISM, we ask that you consider editing this wiki so that your entry is to your liking, or that you move your name to the list of inactive clergy, rather than delete your name--which is, of course, your prerogative. In this way, we will create together a comprehensive listing of all past and present clergy who were ordained and/or consecrated in the ISM. For assistance with editing, please message IndieCath. ISM clergy are notorious for being...independent. We encourage you to get to know and build relationships with the ISM clergy near you!

For laity: To search the names below, type Control+F (PC) or Command+F (Mac). This listing is created for informational purposes and is not an endorsement of any individual or organization. Many people find their spiritual thirst quenched by the life-giving waters of the various branches of the Independent Sacramental Movement, which flow outside of mainstream, big-box churches. Please don't hesitate to contact any of the active clergy below to inquire into receiving the sacraments of the Church and/or to build community with likeminded seekers!
