The MAIN question is what are the differences between the Polish Catholic Church and the American Catholic Church?
Divorce in the polish Catholic church is a big No No in poland
Divorce in a polish Catholic church in the US, No big deal..
Getting holy communion in a Polish Catholic chuch is done either in your hand standing or kneeling. In your mouth standing or kneeling.
I have seen it done both ways.
I could not tell you in poland .
I know in a polish catholic church in the US People do Celebrate by clapping , wedding,baptism,so fourth.
Priests in poland are more strict during a mass than here in the US.
A priest in poland will stop a mass and ask you to leave if you act like a fool.
Here in the Us they won't stop a mass. At least I have never seen it stopped.
In the US the church is packed on Holidays by poles.
Normal polish sunday mass is not that full of poles .
Confession is open during the first half of the mass. At every Mass.
Sometimes after mass too a priest will come back and listen to your confession.
After mass there is usually a few members who will stay and light candles and pray for there loved ones.
As far as I remember. As a kid the church remained open all day to everyone.
It was only locked at night.
And as far as clothes. You had to be dressed nice . AS a kid I had too.
as an adult I go in Jeans, Or what ever clean clothes I have at the time.
I don't know why it would matter how you are dressed. You don't go to church to get noticed by others , Or to show off your goods , You go to pray and worship the lord.
So wearing my Armoni or whatever has no relevence in worshiping the lord.
