For almost one hundred and fifty years, we undertook our public work in the name of the Order of Corporate Reunion. In 2023, however, we made the decision to reprise the public name of our predecessor organization, The Association for the Promotion of the Unity of Christendom.
This decision was intended as an act of "Kingdom-thinking." On account of the liberalizing trajectory pursued by certain elements, the name of the Order of Corporate Reunion acquired a negative association in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In addition, due to a variety of personality conflicts which have given rise to acts of separation, there are now four organizations claiming to be the Order of Corporate Reunion which are engaged in various disputes with each other. For these reasons, as an organization, we decided that the best course of action was to withdraw from all of these disputes and make a break with the past so that we could distance ourselves from the schisms and scandals of the past and serve as a more effective witness to Christian truth.
Those who share our goal of promoting Christian unity by promoting a restoration of the Church to its apostolic witness are cordially invited to assist in our work.
