Catholic Apostolic Charismatic Church Of Jesus The King
The Catholic Apostolic Charismatic Church of "Jesus the King" (Iglesia Católica Apostólica Carismática "Jesús Rey") is an independent international religious association of Catholic origin and character, with headquarters and legal recognition in Munich, Germany.
It has been described as a derivative movement of the Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church (ICAB – Portuguese "Igreja Católica Apostólica Brasileira") founded by the retired Roman Catholic Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa in 1945, but the group's development is more complex than this suggests. In recent years, the "Jesús Rey Church", as it is often known, reached the attention of the international media on account of controversial ordinations to the priesthood of Roman Catholic women, both lay and religious, resulting in their excommunication by the Vatican. This group is known as the Danube Seven.
