Full Communion 

The mutual recognition of the members and ministry of two or more churches and the common recognition of the validity of the sacraments of the churches. Churches so related remain canonically distinct and need not assent to all the doctrines, customs, and practices of each other. Such communion is found among the churches of the Anglican Communion and between the Anglican and Old Catholic churches.
