Pope Francis blessed a cornerstone for anew Roman Catholic church in Rivn
The general audience with the Pope, which was held in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican on June 17, 2015, was attended by pilgrims from Ukraine, including sisters Mateusz Navrotska and Julia Potas of the Congregation of Divine Providence, which came from the city of Rivne with Fr. Krzysztof Orlitsky, vicar of the parish of Saints Peter and Paul and Divine Mercy.
During the meeting with the Holy Father, the pilgrims stopped nearby for a few minutes, read an accompanying inscription and blessed the cornerstone for the construction of a new Roman Catholic church in Rivne, as reported by Vatican Radio.
