During the Second pilgrimage to the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection on August 17, UGCC head Patriarch Sviatoslav (Shevchuk) urged to pray and support the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, because it is now experiencing a martyrdom, notes the Information Department of the UGCC.
"Today our Church in Donetsk and Luhansk is experiencing a martyrdom and it needs our prayer and support," said the head of the UGCC.
After the service, head of the UGCC blessed the icon of Jesus Christ Almighty specially for Donetsk. "This icon represents God's blessing on this long-suffering city, which today sheds blood. May the Lord hear our prayers and pleas for peace and stop the bloodshed," wished the Patriarch.
