The annual autumn meeting of Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic bishops of Ukraine has started in Briukhovychi
Due to epidemiological restrictions, most bishops participate in the retreat online.
On Thursday, November 26, after the retreat, a several-hour fraternal meeting of Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic hierarchs of Ukraine will take place, which will also be available online.
One of the main elements of the meeting will be the discussion of the new encyclical of Pope Francis "Fratelli tutti". The bishops of the UGCC and the RCC in Ukraine will also exchange views on the organization of pastoral care in the current epidemiological situation.
We will add that Catholic bishops of Ukraine gather for joint retreats every year. One year they are organized by the community of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the other by the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine.
