Administrative history

The Old Roman Catholic Church in Great Britain was founded by Archbishop Arnold Harris Mathew in 1910 as a continuation of the Church of Utrecht in the United Kingdom. Mathew left the Old Catholic Church of the Netherlands over what he felt was a movement away from Roman Catholicism. The Church holds seven sacraments, apostolic succession, devotion to the Virgin Mary and the Saints, and maintains other Catholic doctrines while excluding those added after 1870. Mathew was succeeded by Archbishops Bernard Mary Williams, George Gerard Shelley, Geoffrey Peter Paget King, James Charles Headley-Thatcher, Dennis St. Pierre, Douglas Lewins, and William Myers.
