Opinions, major differences? Anything I should know? If someone is from the PNCC can they work in a Roman Catholic church? Any info is helpful.

Anything I should know?

This is the basic difference between Catholics and "high church" Protestants. Both are Christian and catholic (in the universal sense).

If someone is from the PNCC can they work in a Roman Catholic church?

It depends on what you mean by this. PNCC members are not considered Roman Catholics by either themselves or the Roman Catholic Church. As such, PNCC clergy are not eligible to serve in the Roman Catholic Church. Unconfirmed Roman Catholics (including most PNCC members) can not receive communion in the Roman Catholic Church. Without a dispensation, Roman Catholics may not marry PNCC members and remain in good standing as Roman Catholics.

Several PNCC married priests have been received into the RC Church WITHOUT RE-ORDINATION, meaning that their PNCC Holy Orders were regarded as valid by the Vatican. By contarst. when Anglican priests are received into the RC clergy, they have to be re-ordained according to the Roman Rite. All PNCC sacraments are regarded as VALIDUM SED ILLICITUM (valid but illicit), but in the post-Vatican II era these differences are usually not emphasized. When a mixed PNCC-RC couple marries in one of the two churches, a priest of the other side is on hand to bestow his blessing on the newly weds, meaning that their marriage is accepted as binding by both churches. Incidentally, in Poland, the PNCC is known as the Polish-Catholic Church (Kościół Polskokatolicki). They've got nearly 100 parishes in Poland, in most major cities (2 in Warsaw) as well as in some smaller towns and villages as well. For more info Google Kościół Polskokatolicki.
