Delegation of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of the USA Visited Patriarchal Cathedral
KYIV – On March 9, 2010, the delegation of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of the USA headed by Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington, visited the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ of the UGCC. “Kyiv is the center of Ukraine and I am glad that Greek Catholics are here because you should be in the center of the country. I hope that this very large and uniquely designed church will soon open its doors to the faithful and Masses will be celebrated here,” noted the hierarch.
According to Information Department of UGCC, the auxiliary bishop Yosyf (Milian) of the Kyivan Archeparchy told the visitors that stained-glass windows are now being installed in the church and by the end of the year the external building work will be completed.
The delegation also met with representatives of the Greek and Roman Catholic clergy of Ukraine.
