The largest statue of Jesus Christ was consecrated by Bishop of the UGCC, Yaroslav Pryriz. Several hundred residents and guests of Truskavets gathered for the celebrations, maintaining a quarantine distance.
The initiator of the construction of this sculpture, which was built for several years, was a local entrepreneur Igor Kisak, the author of the project - architect Ivan Bodnarchuk.
On the occasion of the consecration of the statue, a liturgy was held in the Church of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos.
