Pastoral Letter to the Ukrainian Catholic Faithful Image and Likeness of God

How do we as Ukrainian Catholics respond to those who are faced with the age-old questions of life and death? How do we remain faithful to the teaching of the Church, and at the same time journey with those in the midst of suffering and loneliness?

Thank you to all who responded to the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s “Becoming a More Welcoming Parish” survey. The Eparchial Pastoral Council and I have compiled the results and will be using them as a foundation for engaging our Ukrainian Catholic community in the process of renewal, as addressed in the 25 Year Pastoral Plan (the Plan).

Restoration of the Liturgical Practice of the KISS OF PEACE (ENG/UKR)

The Kiss of Peace is an expression of reconciliation and unity between the people present at a liturgical assembly.

This was the custom in ancient Judea and was also practiced by Christians.
