The Anglican Catholic Church is a worldwide body of Anglican Christians which grew out of the 1977 Congress of St. Louis. The congress was called in response to decisions made by the Episcopal Church to approve the ordination of women and to issue a heavily revised Book of Common Prayer. As a result, the Anglican Church in North America was founded. By 1978, four bishops had been consecrated, and then the church split into three separate churches, the Anglican Catholic Church, the Anglican Province of Christ the King, and the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada. ...more on Wikipedia about "Anglican Catholic Church"
The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada was founded in the 1970s by conservative high church Anglo-Catholics who were dissatisfied with the Anglican Church of Canada's (the "ACC") decision to confer priestly ordination upon women as well as the liturgical reforms that would evolve into the Book of Alternative Services. They continue to maintain an all-male clergy and more recently been focused their criticisms of the ACC on its increasing acceptance of homosexuality. The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada is the second-largest Anglican denomination in Canada. It is a part of the Traditional Anglican Communion, which also includes the Anglican Church in America. It is unrelated to the similarly named U.S. body. The church has forty-five parishes and missions throughout Canada, as well as one parish in Washington State, though many of its pastoral charges are actually small home worship gatherings led by unpaid volunteer clergy. The current bishop of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada is the Rt. Rev'd Peter Wilkinson, of Victoria, British Columbia. ...more on Wikipedia about "Anglican Catholic Church of Canada"

The Anglican Rite Jurisdiction of the Americas is an Anglican traditionalist church originating from within the Anglican Catholic Church in the United States and the Philippine Independent Catholic Church in the early 1980s. As an early part of the Continuing Anglican Movement, it sought to consecrate bishops with valid orders in an unbroken lineage of apostolic succession to serve the needs of conservative Episcopalians who objected to the revision of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, to the ordination of women, and to the Episcopal Church's relaxation of traditional rules concerning marriage and sexuality. ARJA no longer exists, its parishes and clergy having joined other Continuing Anglican churches. ...more on Wikipedia about "Anglican Rite Jurisdiction of the Americas"
The Continuing Anglican Movement is a group of Christian churches which follow the Anglican tradition but which split from a province of the Anglican Communion because of its perceived rejection of orthodoxy. The movement originated in the Episcopal Church in the United States of America (ECUSA) and the Anglican Church of Canada. Related churches in other countries, such as the Church of England (Continuing) and the Anglican Catholic Church in Australia, were established later. The most controversial issues were the decisions made in various countries to ordain women and to make theological changes in new modern-language editions of the Book of Common Prayer. ...more on Wikipedia about "Continuing Anglican Movement"
