Successful ECC Holy Synod 2022!

The Ecumenical Catholic Communion wrapped up its biannual synod in St. Louis, Missouri October 12, 2022.

The four-day gathering celebrated the eight years of leadership of the ECC’s now-former presiding bishop Francis Krebs, and it elected, consecrated and installed its new presiding bishop, Paul “Pablo” Burson. You can find several photos from the event at the ECC Holy Synod 2022 Facebook page.

More than 140 people gathered in person and virtually for this event.

Please join us in thanking Bishop Francis Krebs for his service and for his tremendous ecumenical, bridge-building heart, as well as, Rev. Rosa Buffone & Father Teri Harroun of the ECC House of Pastors, Paula Hayford and Therese Michalski Gabriel of the ECC House of Laity for their leadership.

We also congratulate new Presiding Bishop Paul Burson as well as, Rev. Dr. Trish Sullivan Vanni, who was elected Vice Chair of the ECC’s House of Pastors and Claudia Kilby Vice Chair of the ECC’s House of Laity. Thank you to all the HOP and HOL delegates and members of parishes who attended in person and remotely, and our retired and active regional bishops who form our Council of Bishops.
