Who we are
The Nordic Catholic Church was established in Norway in 2000 under the auspices of the Polish National Catholic Church (PNCC). We are an Old Catholic Church and, since July 2011, Member Church of the Union of Scranton.
The Nordic Catholic Church outside Scandinavia has parishes and communities in Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, UK, France, Italy and Spain.
Bishop Roald Nikolai Flemestad remains Bishop Delegate of the Union of Scranton for Europe also after the transfer of the Nordic Catholic Diocese of Scandinavia to his successor Bishop Ottar Mikael Myrseth. He will then continue to give episcopal oversight to the work and mission of the Nordic Catholic Church in Continental Europe and the United Kingdom.

Per timorem Domini et
