Who We Are and What We Believe
The Polish National Catholic Church is a Western Rite Catholic Church free of the Papal jurisdiction of the Bishop of Rome. We hold to the Catholic Faith which was taught by Jesus Christ to His Apostles and Disciples and affirmed by the First Seven Ecumenical Councils of the Church. We are Catholic in faith, worship, morals, and tradition. We do not hold any manmade teachings put forth after 1054. In the PNCC the laity as well as the clergy have an equal say in the life of the Church. We meet in General Synod to set the direction of the Church, particularly in the material needs, as well as in the election of bishops. Along with that there are diocesan synods and each parish holds a Congregational Meeting to discuss the needs of the parish and elect a Parish Committee. As I stated we are a democratic Church each Parishioner is responsible both personally and financially to this Parish. Our bishops, priests and deacons are permitted to marry. Divorced people may participate in Holy Mass receive Holy Communion and remarry in the Church. Our bishops, priests & deacons are permitted to marry.
Here at St. Mary’s we offer a traditional Catholic Liturgy & all Services are in English with contemporary beliefs, but keeping our Ethnic traditions. People of all ethnic backgrounds are welcome. We are a democratic Church and each member is responsible for its well-being. We have a beautiful property, Religious instruction for children, as well as organizations for children and adults. We are a family friendly parish. You will have role in the life of St. Mary’s. We live by the motto of Prime Bishop Hodur; By Truth Work & Struggle we Succeed!
