Life

Francis George Lee was trained in Cuddesdon Theological College, and ordained to priesthood 1856 by the Bishop of Oxford, Samuel Wilberforce. Lee became together with Ambrose de Lisle and others, a co-founder of the Association for Promoting the Union of Christendom (A.P.U.C.). He founded a clandestine Anglo-Papist society, the Order of Corporate Reunion, to continue the work of the A.P.U.C. and to restore the apostolic succession through re-ordinations as a means for reunion. Lee was consecrated a bishop by some Roman Catholic prelates whose names were kept secret. Later, however, Lee became disillusioned and recognized that he had made a mistake. He was received into the Roman Catholic Church in 1901, shortly before his death.
