His Beatitude Sviatoslav visited UGCC parishes in Kyiv: Askold's Tomb and Voznesensky Descent

Wednesday, 06 April 2022, 21:06
His Beatitude Sviatoslav, Head of the UGCC, visited two parishes in the Ukrainian capital. At St. Nicholas parish, on the site of Askold's grave, the Primate was welcomed by Fr. Ihor Onishkevich and a group of parishioners. At Ascension Descent, or Voznesenky Street in Kyiv, the hegumen (abbot) of the monastery of St. Basil the Great, Fr. Taras Tyzhnyk, and the brethren greeted the Head of the Church at their monastery.

The visit of the UGCC’s Head was a pleasant surprise for the pastors, as they were not informed in advance about His Beatitude Sviatoslav's desire to visit them. The meetings that took place in each of the parishes can be described as “warm-hearted and affectionate”. 

Details of the visit can be viewed in our video.
