The Founders of the
League believed this to be possible because the Church of
England was committed to the whole Catholic faith and, therefore, to the Roman Primacy.
This is because the historic appeal of the Church of
England is to Scripture and Tradition as interpreted by
the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and defined in
General Councils. There is also evidence to show that the
acceptance of the conciliar decisions depended in large
measure on the approval of the Roman See.
Yet the Founders of
the League also believed that the Apostolic See needed
the Church of England both for its tradition of worship,
spirituality and scholarship and as a means of
evangelization of England. These convictions are
expressed in the objects of the League :
The promotion of
fellowship among Catholics.
The Union of all
Christians with the
Apostolic See of Rome.
The spread of the
The deepening of
the spiritual life.
The Catholic League is
a registered charity, governed by an elected Priest
Director, Secretary General and a Council of members
which includes both Anglicans
and Roman Catholics.
Under the patronage
of Our Lady, Mother of the Church
League was founded at
Corringham in Essex on the feast of the Visitation of Our
Lady in 1913 to maintain Catholic truth in the Church of
England, and also to work for the re-union of all
Christians with the Apostolic See of Rome.
