October 20, 2021 a memorial desk to the Reverend Michael J. McGivney was established in the premises of Administrative building at the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ.

Carl Anderson marked a value of this synodal hall for restoring the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. “It is a big honor to have an opportunity to be involved in restoration of Ukrainian Church, a synodal hall in particular, and what it means to the whole Church. Pope Francis throughout his pontificate emphasizes that synodality is a great opportunity for us to serve the Church”, he said.

The memorial desk is placed at the entrance to the synodal hall. Building the hall was held by a financial support of the Knights of Columbus. The next year the Synod of Bishops of the UGCC will be holding sessions taking important for the UGCC decisions.

In turn His Beatitude Sviatoslav regarded this event with recently introduced preparation to the next Synod of Catholic Church called “the Synodal path”. He also added that it is essential for our Church in Kyiv next to the Patriarchal Cathedral have enough space to host Synods of Bishops of our Church.

Hence, the Major Archbishop expressed his gratitude to all benefactors who contributed to this big event and greeted Carl Anderson, a former Supreme Knight of the society who he opened this memorial desk with.
