If the website http://thenewcatholic.org/us.html is maintained by the theological body referred to in the question, the New Catholic Church appears to differ with established Roman Catholic practices with respect to allowing the ordination of women, and abolishing the requirement for priestly celibacy.

The site also says that the church "welcomes all individuals seeking to be apostles to join us, regardless of their race, gender, or one’s own beliefs, in hope of achieving our mutual goals."

The site mentions the offices of bishops, priests, and deacons within the church, but does not refer to the pope.

More fundamentally, it was not clear to me from my reading of the site as to whether the church recognizes the deity of Christ, whom the site refers to as "a prophet and a spiritual man" (although it does apparently acknowledge His resurrection and ascension).

The site also states that the Holy Spirit proceeds only from the Father, rather than from the Father and the Son (as stated in the Nicene Creed).
