Public invitation to see patriarch in Kiev


Religiina Pravda, 18 August 2021


The PTsU [Orthodox Church of Ukraine] is inviting believers to meet the ecumenical patriarch and to join in a liturgy with his participation.


"We invite believers to join us in welcoming the ecumenical patriarch, the first among equals, and to lift our thanks to the Lord in joint prayer. After all, it is owing to the firm position of His Holiness that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church now has equal rights with other local churches of the world, and the Ukrainian people may worship in their native church in their native language," the PTsU notes.


In particular, there will be a festive meeting of the patriarch and prayers of thanksgiving on the occasion of his arrival on 21 August at 10:00 in the St. Michael's Golden-Domed cathedral.


On 22 August, at 9:00, a Divine Liturgy will be conducted under the open sky on the territory of the Holy Wisdom cathedral of Kiev, which will be led by two primates: Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Metropolitan of Kiev and all-Ukraine Epifany. (tr. by PDS, posted 18 August 2021)
