You don't have to imagine anymore!

Organized in 1897 as the Polish National Catholic Church, we now minister to people of many ethnic backgrounds. It is the doctrine of the Church that brings us together, not our individual ethnic origins.

We are an Apostolic Catholic Church. We preserve the faith of the Apostles and have apostolic succession with an unbroken line of bishops from the Apostles of Jesus Christ to the present day bishops and priests. Our beliefs are based on Holy Scripture, Christian Tradition and Church Ecumenical Synods.

People who are dissatified with their current religious situation, divorced or of a different faith are welcome. No one is denied the freedom to worship or take part in the sacraments. Eveyone can participate in all aspects of Christian life.
