“The North American Old Catholic Church looks forward to establishing a presence in Minneapolis with the ordination of Father Kearns,” said Bishop Benjamin Evans, who is presiding over the ordination on January 19. “God’s Holy Spirit continues to bless us with growth.”

Founded in 2007, the North American Old Catholic Church has a mission of social justice, does not submit to the authority of the Pope, and is open to female and LGBT clergy.

“I am honored and humbled to have my calling to ministry affirmed by the North American Old Catholic Church,” says Kearns, who transitioned while studying at Union Theological Seminary in New York. “I look forward to many years serving as a priest.

  1. Our Lord loves the sinner NOT the sin – Dear Lord what has this world come to! The sins of Sodom and Gommorah revisited and even worse! God’s Holy Catholic Church does NOT condone or support any of this! Another fake “catholic” clergy person supporting sin. God’s Holy Catholic Church does NOT support the LGBT agenda and Marriage is between one man and one woman. Pray for the salvation of your souls.
