Resolution 28

Resolution 28

That in accordance with the sentiments expressed by the bishops who met in the last Conference, we regard it as our duty to maintain and promote friendly relations with the Old Catholic community in Germany, and with the Christian Catholic Church in Switzerland, assuring them of our sympathy, of our thankfulness to God who has held them steadfast in their efforts for the preservation of the primitive faith and order, and who, through all discouragements, difficulties, and temptations, has given them the assurance of his blessing, in the maintenance of the principles, in the enlargement of their congregations, and in the increase of their Churches. We continue the offer of the religious privileges by which the clergy and faithful laity may be admitted to Holy Communion on the same conditions as our own communicants.
