The fruit of the Patriarchal Council will be a new pastoral plan of the Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav
The participants of the meeting shared their thoughts on how the Church should live and act in the modern conditions of the post-coronavirus world.
The logic of holding the Patriarchal Council is based on three points: "Listen-Think-Act." These are the reflections that will help to form pastoral planning.
"The fruit of the Patriarchal Council should be a new pastoral plan," His Beatitude Sviatoslav emphasized during the meeting.
"We need to pay attention to the deep traumas that confuse the society and lead to aggression. We need such closeness that can heal injuries,” said Metropolitan Borys Gudziak of Philadelphia, voicing the achievements that the synodal group has achieved in the process of pastoral planning.
The next meeting is to be attended by all the secretaries of the eparchial councils,
