In 1893 a seminarian, Francis Hodur, came to the United States, and was ordained a priest at St.Peter's Roman Catholic Cathedral in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and assigned as assistant priest at Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary Parish in Scranton's South Side.
In 1904, the first General Synod of the Polish National Catholic Church held in September in Scranton. Its actions included a decisive break with the Roman Catholic Church and the election of Fr. Hodur as Bishop.
