“The effects of this division are still felt today in families and in communities, especially where PNCC has established parishes. Due to this division, the Polish National Catholic Church is not in ‘complete communion’ with the Roman Catholic Church. This means that, although the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist – when celebrated in the PNCC – are valid, it is not lawful (not legal according to the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church) for Roman Catholics to receive them. Doing so reinforces our divisions “, they emphasize.
