Medical workers are invited to the IX All-Ukrainian pilgrimage to Stradch
This is reported by the UGCC Information Department.
According to the program, doctors will be able to listen to the unique history of Stradetska mountain and join the Episcopal Divine Liturgy, which will be led by Bishop Ivan Kulyk, eparch of Kamianets-Podilsky. After that, there will be a treat. In the afternoon, a prayer is planned on the way of the cross with gratitude for the gift of life. At the same time, medical workers are also provided with free time during which they will be able to communicate.
According to the head of the UGCC Commission on pastoral care, sister Sevastiyana Karvatska, at the current pilgrimage, special attention will be paid to the gratitude of medical workers for their selfless service during the global pandemic: "The current pilgrimage, like last year, will take place outdoor so that you can ensure maximum distance, compliance with quarantine standards. We will also focus on gratitude to doctors, prayer for them, and gratitude for their work. We would like medical professionals to be among the co-organizers of the pilgrimage. We want this event to become, in a certain sense, historic for the Stradch Mountain. The number of people who will be able to take part in the pilgrimage will be limited, but we will not have such strict restrictions as last year. Therefore, basically, everyone will be able to join. After all, today, there is a certain improvement in the situation with the pandemic. This year has taught us the culture of living with the pandemic. We know how to protect ourselves and those around us. If the epidemiological situation, God forbid, worsens, we will take this into account."
