The Young Rite is an international organization rooted in the Liberal Catholic Tradition. One of our primary objectives is that the Holy Eucharist is celebrated frequently by as many priests as possible. The basic precepts of the Young Rite are:
Spirituality is inclusive, therefore all may attend.
Authority and responsibility lie with the individual, our bishops are mentors and not overseers.
Mystery implies an experiential foundation, therefore ritual is important.
The Young Rite is an umbrella organization. Members include complete churches as well as clergy who operate under the Young Rite banner under the episcopal support of the bishops of the Young Rite.
What we are...
Our history, our vision, and our mission in the world.
