Do you know why and when did they quit Church of Poland?
Around the time of WW2. There were many reasons: controversies around their leaders and things they were doing, inner conflicts, conflicts with other Polish Old Catholics and finally the war whith all confusion, uncertainty and genocide which it brought. You can read more here: http://www.kurier.wzz.org.pl/kz/kz164/9.shtml
What I find hopeful is the fact that the Liturgy of St Gregory ( http://orthodoxwiki.org/Liturgy_of_St._Gregory_the_Great
) is probably still considered canonical by our hierarchs. That means that it could be used locally on some occasions, e.g. on St Gregory the Dialogist's feast day (12 March). It would be beautiful to restore Western rite use in Poland.
I also heard about two WR parishes after WWII. One in Hamburg (also former Old Catholic) and one in Wrocław. That in Germany quited the Church of Poland in 1990s but I don't know what happened to that in Wrocław (it was created in 1960s or something).
That's interesting. Any sources?
Tak przy okazji to skąd jesteś i jak znalazłeś to forum? :)BTW where are you from and how did you find this forum?
Odpowiem przez priva.
I'll answer via PM.
I remember many moons ago, when the internet was young, asking the Western Rite Vicarate about why the Polish National Catholic weren't interested in WRO.
What exactly where the reasons? Was it the WRV who gave the proposition or the PNCC asked first?
I wonder if things have changed, given the disarray of the Union of Utrecht now.
As far as I know, the PNCC (of US and Canada) resigned from th Union of Utrecht in 2003 and is now seeking full communion with Rome.Translation added - MK.
