Founded in 1931 by Polish Americans, the St. Valentine’s Polish National Catholic Church is a parish in Northampton, Massachusetts and a member of the Polish National Catholic Church. Following the Old Catholic movement, it is separate from the Roman Catholic Church, as it differs theologically by embracing different positions. The nave, which houses up to 500 parishioners, has a triple barrel-vaulted ceiling with the center vault depicting simple ornamental motifs and Jesus Christ ascending to heaven. On the arch above the altar is the Church’s symbol embodying its principles, which consists of the Book (representing the Word of God), the sun (the sign of religious freedom and fervor), the cross (the mark of suffering and consecration for others) and the palm (symbol of peace) along with the words, Prawda, Praca, Walka (English translation: Truth, Work, Struggle) indicating how these principles are to be incorporated into the routines of daily life.
