Saint Alexander Nevsky, Grand Prince of Kiev, Prince of Novgorod, rejecting subservience to the Roman diocese. Although the Imperial Roman Church is Apostolic heir to the temporal patrimony of St. Peter,  the Apostolic See of Saints Mark and Stephen continues that legacy of autocephalous autonomy,  which has been confirmed numerous times over the last millenium, most recently in 2013, and  thus is not subservient to the Bishops of Rome, Constantinople, Antioch, or other patriarchal sees . Although we embrace the churches of the various patriarchs around the world as Christian brethren, this Apostolic See is not subject to any other jurisdiction. 

 Sant'Aleksandr Nevskij, Gran Principe di Kiev, Principe di Novgorod, rifiutando la sottomissione alla diocesi romana. Sebbene la Chiesa Imperiale Romana sia erede apostolica del patrimonio temporale di San Pietro, la Sede Apostolica dei Santi Marco e Stefano continua quell'eredità di autonomia autocefala, che è stato confermato numerose volte nel corso dell'ultimo millennio, l'ultima nel 2013, e così non è sottomessa ai Vescovi di Roma, Costantinopoli, Antiochia, o altre sede patriarchali. Anche se abbracciamo le chiese dei vari patriarchi in tutto  il mondo come fratelli cristiani, questa Sede Apostolica non è soggetta ad alcuna altra giurisdizione.  

  Святой Александр Невский, великий князь Киевский, князь Новгородский, отвергающий подчинение римской епархии. Хотя Императорская Римская Церковь является апостольской наследницей мирского наследия Святого Петра, Апостольский престол святых Марка и Стефана продолжает это наследие автокефальной автономии,  что было подтверждено много раз за последнее тысячелетие, последний раз в 2013 году,и, таким образом, не подчиняется епископам Рима, Константинополя, Антиохии или других патриарших престолов. Хотя мы принимаем церкви различных патриархов во всем мире, как христианский бретен, этот Апостольский Престол не подлежит никакой другой юрисдикции.   



   Other Orthodox or Catholic Churches, such as the modern Vatican Church and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, are unaffiliated with the Imperial Roman Church except where specifically stated.
Le altre chiese ortodosse o cattoliche, come la chiesa moderna del Vaticano ed il Patriarcato Ecumenico di Costantinopoli, non sono affiliate alla Chiesa Romana Imperiale, tranne quando è specificamente indicato.
Другие православные или католические церкви, такие как современная Ватиканская Церковь и Вселенский Константинопольский Патриархат, не связаны с Императорской Римской Церковью,
за исключением специально оговоренных случаев.

The Church unites people from all over the world.


The Imperial Roman Church is a modern Christian communion of ancient Roman-Syrian-Byzantine origins. With its Apostolic heritage from Saint Peter the Apostle, Saint Andrew the First-Called, and Saint Thomas the Apostle, and traditions from both the western and eastern Christian Church and Roman Empire, it represents a unique unification of the various branches of the Christian Faith. Its members are described as Old Roman Catholic, Old Catholic, and Pontifical Orthodox. The latter refers to Christians of the Eastern Rite, Oriental Rite, or of other rites with Eastern or Oriental Christian origins and customs that are in communion with the Supreme Pontiff of the Imperial Roman Church. It is also of Roman/Latin heritage. In fact, multiple Old Roman Catholic/Old Catholic jurisdictions incorporate the concept of Orthodoxy, even including it in their jurisdictional name. Pontifical Orthodoxy is pan-Roman, spanning the original Roman Empire from west to east and extending throughout all of the Christian world. It is at once western and eastern, incorporating the rich and diverse heritage of the Christian faith.   Thus it follows the wish of Our Lord Ut unum sint – That all may be one. And over the years, the Apostolic See of Sts. Stephen and Mark and its various jurisdictions and organisations around the world established religious orders, built parishes and religious communities, grew chaplaincies servings the poor and vulnerable, expanded vocations, built service organisations to facilitate and promote humanitarian work, carried out significant historical preservation work, engaged in extensive diplomatic work, and published an substantial collection of liturgical, theological, and historical books.

The Imperial Roman Church serves people around the world,
regardless of race, nationality, or religious affiliation.

The Imperial Roman Church is a sovereign entity and maintains its privilege of autonomy of government, which has existed for nearly 1000 years. Its principle lines of Apostolic authority that are held are Roman, Gallican, Russian, and Byzantine/Greek. It is also the ecclesiastical heir to the Roman Empire and the Pontifical Kingdom of Ruthenia. The church may be described as Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic or Pontifical Orthodox. Indeed, all are welcome who profess, as we say in the holy mass, the Orthodox, Catholic, and Apostolic Faith. All are welcome who wish to love their neighbour and grow in their faith, for the faith is a journey.

The Church is headed by the Florentine-Roman Papa, Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicos as its Supreme Pontiff. The Papa-Catholicos is 266th in succession from St. Peter the Apostle as Prince of the Romans, 74th Grand Duke of Ruthenia, 142nd in Gallican-Antioch succession from St. Peter, 169th in Greco-Russian succession from St. Andrew the First-Called, and 116th in Syrian-Antioch succession from St. Thomas the Apostle.

The Stato Pontificio Imperiale di Rome-Rutenia constitutes an ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome as heir to the Roman Empire with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (as the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church). Additionally, the church is of the Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic faith and descends from the See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and confirmed in 1520 by Pope St. Leo X in the Bull Debitum Pastoralis. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle, the Catholicate and Patriarchate are fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Catholicate and Patriarchate are the ecclesiastical successor to temporal Rome, the temporal patrimony of the Roman Empire claimed historically by right of the papacy. The succession passed to the Catholicate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Catholicos of Rome-Ruthenia with papal authority as temporal successor of St. Peter, and the Pope-Bishop of Rome as spiritual successor of St. Peter and de facto sovereign of the Vatican City-State. Although administratively independent, the Apostolic See embraces as brethren other Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, Eastern Orthodox Churches, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome, and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Catholicate. The governments of the modern republics of Italy, German, France, Switzerland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and the United States, and of the modern kingdoms of Great Britain and Spain, as well as the European Union and all other civil states, are not affiliated with the Stato Pontificio government in exile.
