Rev. Tadeusz Czelen – Pastor
St. Mary’s Parish of the Polish National Catholic Church has been in existence for 117 years. It is our hope and prayer to grow in service to God and community. This commitment manifests itself in regular devotional and prayer life and a greater participation in both ecumenical and community activities. At St. Mary’s Parish, our primary emphasis is on the Parish Family. All who belong sense this family spirit – expressed in a real love and concern for one another. Our pastor makes a point to know each family on a one-to-one basis with visits to family homes and to the hospitalized. Thus the spiritual health and vitality of all parishioners and all our friends is supported by both pastor and laity.
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN OUR PARISH FAMILY! If you are looking for a parish and are considering St. Mary’s Parish, feel free to talk with any parishioner about it. We will introduce you to our family in all its wonderful aspects- a family whose real strength lies in our personal and real relationship to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We express this faith in our Church through our liturgy which is Catholic and traditional, shared between priest and laity. We demonstrate this faith in the prayerful material and emotional support we give one another. We share this faith in a Church rooted in democratic principles and a church constitution giving laity full rights due process in matters financial, administrative and material.

In November we pray for all our deceased loved ones who are preparing to enter Heaven by being purified of their sins, weaknesses and failures, and also the effects of sin on themselves and others. I encourage all of you to make certain this month that you have requested Masses to be offered for your loved ones. The anniversary of death always provides a great opportunity to remember them, but also birthdays, wedding anniversaries, and other important dates. Since November is specifically dedicated to them, take advantage of All Souls Day cards (Wypominki). Even if you can’t afford to give an offering, give us their names. We will pray for them.
