UOC-MP priest drives ATO soldier’s daughter out of church for being baptized in UGCC and praying in Ukrainian
In the town of Bershad, Vinnytsya Oblast, a priest of the UOC-Moscow Patriarchate drove out of the church a woman who was baptized in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and prayed in Ukrainian, not allowing her to become a godmother for a newborn child.
Video footage of this was posted on Facebook by Oksana Lybid, according to Vgolos.
The incident occurred on the feast of Epiphany. It is noted that the girl was invited to become a godmother, but the priest, hearing that she was praying in Ukrainian and had been baptized in the UGCC, said the girl could not be allowed in the church.
Her father, who is a soldier of the ATO, interceded. The man asserted that his daughter was baptized in the Bershad church.
