Metropolitan Epiphaniy said it in an interview for Pryamyy channel, according to Ukrinform.
“We outlined a certain way of our future cooperation, and in future we will look for those points of contact to unite us – this is in the sector of spiritual education, in other sectors of our life, and the relevant commissions will be established by our Orthodox Church and by the UGCC, and we will jointly develop a roadmap for further cooperation,” said Epifaniy.
He stressed that the UGCC and the UOC-KP always had the common goal – to work for the sake of the development of the Ukrainian state, and this is a permanent desire.
As reported, the head of the UGCC, Patriarch Svyatoslav (Shevchuk), appealed to the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy.
