Altar Book

The Celebration of the Eucharist in the Catholic Diocese of the Old Catholics in Germany

For the liturgical use drafted by the Liturgical Commission and edited by the Bishop and Standing Committee

The present publication is the official altar book of the Old Catholic Diocese in Germany. This church has been in full communion with the Anglican Communion since the Bonn Agreement in 1931. It is therefore fitting that the book which is used in the parishes of this diocese - and in many Roman Catholic or Lutheran parishes in Germany, in convents, and in Old Catholic parishes in other countries - should be made available in an English version to bishops, liturgists, and other interested people in the Anglican Communion and beyond. 

The text was translated by the Revd. Dr. Thaddeus A. Schnitker (Dr.Th.A.Schnitker(at)
