Primate of the OCU Epifaniy moved to a new residence on the territory of the St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery.

On May 24, he showed the premises to journalists, Religiyna Pravda reports.

Prior to that, the Primate lived in the Vydubitsky monastery and worked in the old building of the Kyiv Orthodox Theological Academy.

The building where Metropolitan Epifaniy will now live and work was built in 1894 by architect Volodymyr Nikolaev as the House of Episcopal singers of St Michael's monastery.

The building was restored in 2019-2021 at the expense of the family of patrons Andriy and Svitlana Matsol.

Meetings of Holy Synods will also be held here.

According to the memorial inscription on the walls of the residence, major repairs and interior finishing works in a modern classical style were carried out here.

Externally, the building has also been restored and painted in pleasant sunny colors.
