Confraternity of St. Hilda


By authority of His Grace, Archbishop Brother John-Charles, the Confraternity of St. Hilda is a Franciscan association of Anglican Catholics who pray for Church unity and the special ministry of women in the Church.

The Confraternity is rooted in the the three Anglican Catholic parishes who have St. Hilda as their patroness. The three parishes are: St. Hilda of Whitby Parish in Atlanta, Georgia, St. Hilda of Whitby Parish in Natchitoches, Louisiana, and St. Hilda of Whitby Parish in Teralba, New South Wales, Australia.

Membership is open to Christians outside of the Anglican Catholic Church as well.

If you want to be enrolled in the Confraternity contact me via this blog, or via the St. Hilda's website at http://www.sthildasacc.org .

Blessings EveryoneAs a former Postulant of the ACC, I remember the Church of St.Hilda in Terelba very well. Was involved in a service when +John Charles was inducated as former Abp of the Missionary Diocese of Australia and New Zealand. Sadly the Church is no longer in the hands of the ACC. With every good wish in Christ, Ed Bakker

You mean the building itself? Fr. Kirby and St. Hilda's, New South Wales are still with the Anglican Catholic Church.

Dear Fr.John,
Sorry to catch up so late with your comment. Yes, I did mean the building. Fr.Matthew and those in his care worship now in Maitland NSW. The now retired Prime of the ACC, +John-Charles Vockler also resides in a resthome in the area. So yes, they are definately with the ACC. With every good wish in Christ,

Very interesting, Fr. John. As an convert to Orthodoxy from the Anglo-catholic movement, I am much in sympathy with the spirit of your blog. Good luck with the Confraternity!

St. Hilda of Whitby, pray for us!
