Vinnytsia region community changes affiliation to OCU at second attempt
On Sunday, June 9, a meeting of the local religious community was held in the community hall of the Village of Vinnytski Khutory, near the regional center of Vinnytsia. Majority of the votes supported the transition of the community to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. It is reported by the Na Paryzhi website.
The religious community of the village tried to hold a meeting to leave the UOC Moscow Patriarchate last winter, but then the priest called a group of bouncers who obstructed the process. This time the meeting proceeded quite smoothly.
During the vote, 194 members of the religious community supported the transition to the OCU, four villagers voted for the UOC MP, and six abstained. The meeting was attended by the rector of the Church of the Intercession of the Theotokos of the Moscow Patriarchate.
