From The Office Of The Bishop

 

Regarding the Canadian Diocese of the PNCC: The
college of active bishops met in Scranton, PA on Monday December 17th to discuss continuing issues with regards to Poland. Due to plans that were promulgated and set into action without the consent and approval of the Prime Bishop and the church as a whole, a breach of faith and trust was deemed to have occurred. Therefore, the Rt. Rev. Sylvester Bigaj was deposed as a bishop and clergyman of the PNCC. The situation and decision were discussed at the Supreme Council meeting that was held in Scranton
on January 7, 2013. Prime Bishop Anthony Mikovsky will administer the diocese on a temporary basis.


Elevation of Cleric David Nichols: On January 20, 2013, Bishop Mack conferred the rite of tonsure and four minor orders: porter, reader, blesser and acolyte upon David Nichols. Dave is a longtime member of the PNCC in Canonsburg and Washington, PA and has been studying under the direction of Fr. Mark Swoger, pastor of Holy Trinity Parish in Washington, PA. We pray God’s continued blessings upon Dave, his wife, Roseanne and family. May God continue to guide and direct you in your road to the diaconate.
