logo copySt. Leonard Anglican Church is a young church mission of the Orthodox Anglican Church— the North American branch of the global Orthodox Anglican Communion.  The Orthodox Anglican Communion is a global movement of Christians committed to the historic faith in the Anglican tradition. Established in 1967 and with one million lay members, the Orthodox Anglican Communion is the largest such fellowship of Churches not affiliated with the See of Canterbury.

We believe and confess the three ancient Creeds of the Church: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We believe Holy Scripture is God’s written word. We believe in the genuine spiritual power of the sacraments. We believe in the power of God to heal the sick and broken-hearted. We believe that loyalty to our Lord is expressed by service to our fellow man. We believe in the necessity of inward spiritual development and the outward amendment of life of every Christian. We stand for biblical faith and morality. Thus, we ordain only Godly men to Holy Orders and affirm that marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.

“We have no doctrine of our own…
We only possess the Catholic doctrine of the Catholic Church enshrined in the Catholic Creeds, and these Creeds we hold without addition or diminution.”

– The Most Rev. Geoffrey Fisher
