Join Our Communion
Come join our communion! We welcome new members, as well as previously ordained or licensed ministers. Also, for any who feel called to specific public ministry, we invite you to consider applying for minister ordination or license.
If you are simply seeking a loving, forgiving, accepting, and merciful fellowship, or if for whatever reason you have not been able to serve in ordained or licensed ministry in another denomination or communion, then our community may be just what you've been searching for. We invite you to join our communion -- the Celtic Anabaptist Communion ℠ -- on the pilgrimage, on the journey.
Our fellowship is neither Roman Catholic, Orthodox, nor Protestant; rather, we wholeheartedly embrace and affirm Celtic and Anabaptist (Baptist, Quaker, Mennonite, Brethren, etc.) thought and practice, thus our name: the Celtic Anabaptist Communion. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, including Catholic, Protestant, Anglican, and Charismatic, and they hold a variety of beliefs. All, however, are attracted to and desire to follow the Celtic and Anabaptist way. We seek to reach the isolated, the rejected, the lonely, and those who have been wounded by the institutional church. The CAC is a Communion which does not "shoot the wounded;" rather, we offer all of these a haven and a home. So, if you feel God is leading you this way, we welcome you to join our communion.
My name is Michael Wrenn; I am the founder and presiding minister of this fellowship. I was ordained and also consecrated by Archbishop Rodney P. Rickard of the Primitive Catholic Church.
My ministry has included music, singing, writing, counseling, teaching, preaching, and chaplaincy. I am a songwriter-member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP).
Just as I have found a home in the Independent Sacramental Movement, I now want to help do the same for you. So, if you feel drawn to our fellowship and are seeking to follow your calling here, I invite you to review this website thoroughly, and, when you are ready, come join our Communion, and also apply for ordination or licensing if you feel called to this kind of ministry. This is a fellowship in which you can fulfill your calling in whatever way you are called -- whether ordained/licensed, or some other way.
DISCLAIMER: The Celtic Anabaptist Communion DOES NOT assume LEGAL responsibility for its clergy. Neither The Celtic Anabaptist Communion nor the individual clergy is an agent for or of the other. However, each member of the clergy IS answerable to The Celtic Anabaptist Communion and does come under the Archepiscopal oversight of the Presiding Minister/Bishop. If an investigation finds serious violations of Christian ethics, morals, and values have indeed been committed, certain church sanctions can be applied up to and including removal of faculties and excardination.
