1  What is the “Continuing Anglican” movement?   There are dozens of church bodies worldwide which consider themselves part of the Anglican Church, but which are not in communion with the See of Canterbury. The term for these Anglican Churches is “continuing Anglicans,” meaning they are “continuing” in the traditional Anglican faith and practices, while not being part of, or in communion with, The Church of England.

In 1977 an international congress of nearly 2000 Anglican bishops, clergy, and lay people met in St. Louis, Missouri in response to actions taken by the Episcopal Church (USA), that represented a move away from the apostolic faith as understood within the Anglican tradition.
From that 1977 gathering, the Anglican Catholic Church was born.
