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.
