I have a little difficlties with this church.

They say that they belong to the polish church and they also have links to the patriarchates but I can't find anything about them else where.

They used to, until 2001 or 2003 or something like that. Now they are with no one.

Visit of Metropolitan John as the representative of the Polish Orthodox  Church to the Jerusalem without the Synod's approval was the  official reason. Fr. Anastasios once also posted here that Mariavite-like cult emerged there.
