 Polish National Catholic Church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The PNCC was founded in the late 1800s in North America by Polish Roman Catholics resentful of diocesan ownership of their parishes and the dominance of the Roman Catholic Church in North America at that time by German and Irish prelates.
The PNCC left the Union over a variety of issues, but the most significant was the elevation of women to the priesthood by other Utrecht Union Churches.
Although the PNCC has entered into tentative negotiations with the Orthodox Church in North America, no union has resulted due to the PNCC's refusal to abandon several Western concepts (including the Western Church's view of the Holy Trinity and of the sacraments).
