The traditional forms of Polish life have grown out of the spirit of Christian Faith. Their high points, in all their wealth and diversity, are marked out by the Church calendar in its yearly cycle.
To quote H. E. the Archbishop Gawlina, the real beginning of Polish history dates from the acceptance of Christianity. Christianity brought new meaning to older forms of custom and rite and, during centuries of its inspiration, these have become a part and parcel of Polish national experience.
The following pages will be regularly updated to cover all the main Polish Traditions throughout the Ecclesiastical Calendar. Eventually we hope they will cover:
Due to the rich variety of Polish custom, many traditions are regional and may not be known to us, the authors of this web site. If you know of any such traditions, or would simply like to write an article about any tradition not yet covered, it will be most welcome. Please contact the Reverend Czeslaw Osika. Methods of contact may be found on the Contacts Page.
