The Young Rite is a Liberal Catholic Church that operates world-wide. There is a council of three bishops who co-ordinate and administrate the Young Rite and are responsible for its vision, mission, strategy and policy by unanimous agreement. Currently the Council consists of bishops Aristid Havliček, Domen Kočevar, and David Oliver Kling.
The official documents of the Church are limited to:
- The Landmarks
- The list of bishops
- The list of authorised celebrants
- The list of member churches and jurisdictions
The Young Rite also ordains individuals to the priesthood for private services. These persons are not authorised to celebrate the public services of the Young Rite, nor may they in any way represent the Young Rite.
