Sanctification was performed by the head of the UGCC Sviatoslav (Shevchuk), together with members of the Synod of bishops, Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine Thomas Edward Gullickson and Roman Catholic bishops.
The pilgrims from different parts of Ukraine and from Canada, USA, Poland, Argentina, Australia and Kazakhstan took part in celebration.
“Pilgrims came from all over the world: North and South America, Australia and various countries in Western, Northern and Southern Europe, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, and from all the corners of our dear Ukraine. I welcome you in your new home as children of God! As this Cathedral will not be only house of prayer for the Father and the Head of the UGCC. First of all, it is God's home, house for all of His children”, said the Patriarch in his address.
