Currently based in Plymouth, PA and previously in Washington DC, Church Clearinghouse, owned and operated by Kenneth T. Pribanic, has successfully assisted churches, diocesan facilities, convents, seminaries, and private chapels, throughout the United States with their efforts to recycle and reuse ecclesiastical furnishings and artifacts. We have had 22 years of experience in the business and are dedicated to dealing with authentic items. The Church Clearinghouse has an authentic ever-changing stock which includes: Pulpits, Lighting Fixtures, Church Chairs, Altars, Crucifixes, Crosses, Statues, Altar Sets, Altar Cloths, Vestments, Statues, Stations of the Cross, Books, Prints and Paintings, Candlesticks, Church Brassware, Stained Glass, Devotionals and Vessels. We do not import nor sell reproductions.
We provide a confidential intermediary service. We assist the Church by purchasing church furnishings, maintaining comprehensive selection of religious goods and items, and reselling those items to those designing and furnishing new churches. We provide discrete relocation of these items.
We provide a clearinghouse for those more unusual, extraordinary items removed during church renovations, parish consolidations and church closures. Many of these exceptional items are from earlier times. Re-using and recycling statuary, vintage stained glass, devotionals, and altars, etc., has provided an option for the Church to furnish new and renewed spaces with one-of-a-kind items not available in the ecclesiastical merchandice retail market.
Ken Pribanic operates a small company, which gives them the advantage of being able to offer each of our customers a personal experience when doing business with us. Our reputation speaks for itself. We want to make sure that our customers are completely satisfied. We are able to work closely with each and every one of our customers from beginning to end, from a small purchase to a huge renovation project.
Many of the Roman Catholic dioceses are closing, merging, consolidating parishes due to demographic shifts of population. We can help these Churches connect to preserve and re-use these sacred furnishings. This service helps the larger churches as well as the smaller or start-up churches. Whether you're planning a new construction project, or simply interested in acquiring a new statue, chalice, or a complete set of windows . . . Church Clearinghouse can help you locate, purchase and aquire.
