Building Fellowship & Bettering our Community through the Gospel

Welcome to our Website!

     We are happy to have you join us online and we hope your tour of our Site will be fun, interesting, and informative!   Please feel free to tell us what you think about it and come back often as we update every week (with the best of our abilities)!

     We make every effort to create an environment where the world and its earthly problems can be left behind, even for just a little while. We use spiritual means to overcome the burdens of life which weigh heavily upon our shoulders. God promises to relieve our burdens (Matthew 11:28).

     Many religions were exported from other countries to the United States. However, The National Catholic Church (PNCC) is an American Church organized in the United States in 1897 and has 120 parishes throughout our great land. We are One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic, adhering to teachings of the Undivided Catholic Church, guided by Scripture and Tradition, and a Catholic alternative (not governed by the pope) which places people first. See the Difference! A word of caution - There are numerous groups who call themselves National Catholic who are not affiliated with us. If you have any questions or if you need clarification, please contact us.

The National Church...

  • Initiated the language of the people (vernacular) in 1900
  • Abolished mandatory celibacy of clergy in 1921
  • Introduced the Altar of Sacrifice (Mass facing the congregation) in 1931
  • Follows the ancient practice of communion by intinction
  • Maintains Apostolic Succession
Our Parish Work and Mission is also advanced by our Parish Organizations which are:
Frederic Chopin Choir, Adoration Society, St. Joseph Men's Society / YMSR, Altar Servers,
Sunday School, Youth Group, Prayer Circle, and our Fraternal Benefit Society.
