The parity violating (PV) nucleon self-energy in nuclear matter is calculated in a relativistic Hartree-Fock approximation. Omega meson contributions are enhanced 63% by relativistic effects. However, the total PV self-energy is dominated by pi and rho contributions, which are relatively insensitive to relativistic effects. These results are used to estimate the 2dr5/2 to 2f5/2 PV matrix element in Pb-207.
