In Support of Our Church

Working together to touch lives

The Polish National Union of America was founded in 1908 as a Fraternal Benefit Society dedicated to the material and spiritual security of Polish immigrants. Bishop Francis Hodur, organizer of the Polish National Catholic Church, founded Spojnia after recognizing the need to provide financial assistance to others with his same religious beliefs.

Following Bishop Hodur's principles, today's Polish National Union of America is still committed to the Polish National Catholic Church. Nearly 150 Polish National Union of America branches across the country are aligned to serve as many Polish National Catholic Church parishes as possible. Historically, as the Polish National Catholic Church has grown so has the Polish National Union of America and even today, new Polish National Union of America branches are being established to serve new Polish National Catholic Church parishes.

Whether a parish needs financial support for improvements or a mortgage to build a new rectory, the Polish National Union of America has always been there to provide financial support whenever possible. Since its inception in 1908, the Polish National Union of America has supported Polish National Catholic Church parishes with loans and financial assistance totaling millions of dollars. Annually, the Polish National Union of America supports the Polish National Catholic Church seminary to assist young men in their quest for the priesthood. Also, the Polish National Union of America actively supports the Polish National Catholic Church Mission Fund and the many Christian endeavors initiated through this fund.

In the Service of Youth
The Polish National Union of America also contributes funds toward the support of youth. This includes participation in activities such as the Youth Convocation, the Kurs Encampment, and the Labor Day Zlot (a track and field meet). The Polish National Union of America also provides annual support to the Education and Youth Commission, which provides educational stipends for students who are attending college or continuing-education programs.
Our Commitment to Our Church
One of the most tangible examples of the Polish National Union of America's commitment to the Polish National Catholic Church was the construction of the magnificent Polish National Union of America/Polish National Catholic Church office complex. This complex not only houses the Polish National Union of America's administrative offices, but also provides the Polish National Catholic Church with affordable space for its National Church Center, its offices and a chapel for the Prime Bishop and Polish National Catholic Church staff.

On the fourth Sunday of September, the Polish National Union of America and the Polish National Catholic Church jointly celebrate Spojnia Sunday. Spojnia Sunday is a unique feast day in the calendar of the Church, a day on which all Polish National Catholic Church members can reflect upon the spiritual and material contribution that the Polish National Union of America provides to the members of the Church.

As another tangible show of our support for the Church, in 1997 the Polish National Union of America presented a number of Processional Crosses to the Polish National Catholic Church.

What makes the Polish National Union of America so special?
 
The Polish National Union of America is the only fraternal benefit society that is specifically organized to support the numerous Christian endeavors of the Polish National Catholic Church.

Without your support of Polish National Union of America insurance and annuity products, the Polish National Union of America's financial support of the Polish National Catholic Church would not be possible. The Polish National Union of America offers many competitive insurance products for any financial need or personal lifestyle. The ultimate goal of the Polish National Union of America is to have each and every Polish National Catholic Church member consider the Polish National Union of America first when purchasing life insurance or annuities.

We have even created a plan which enables our members to support their Church in a manner that is easy and convenient. We have created the Polish National Union of America Legacy Club. The Legacy Club provides a way for any member to support their church and reap a tax benefit at the same time.
