This year the Synod of Bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church will take place July 7-15 in Przemyśl, Poland.

Its main theme will be "Synodality and Catholicity: The experience of the UGCC."  His Beatitude Sviatoslav issued a decree on May 16, 2022, convening the Holy Synod of Bishops of the UGCC.

All bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church are invited to participate in the Synod, and according to canon law and their vows, they are strictly obligated to do so.  Retired priests, members of the Holy Synod, are also cordially invited.


Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 Synods of UGCC Bishops were held online.  In 2022, the Synod was planned to be held in Kyiv; however, due to the ongoing war, the venue was changed to Przemyśl.
