Outreach Ministries


Franciscan Friars leading a music ministry.

The American National Catholic Church ministers in a variety of locations providing numerous services to the people of God.

Authentic ministry in response to Christ’s Gospel calling is of paramount importance to the ANCC. Outreach is encouraged for all members of the Church – both lay and ordained.  Those who seek to pursue a vocation to religious life or ordained ministry, as well as those seeking incardination, are strongly encouraged to engage in regular and active pastoral ministry.
