The pastoral visit to the Stamford Diocese will end on Sunday, August 12, with a pilgrimage to St Mary's Villa in Sloatsburg, New York, which is supervised by Sisters Servants.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, will pray there jointly with the Head of the UGCC, bishops, priests, monks and numerous lay people.

It is worth noting that during the visit to the USA, meetings will be held in Philadelphia, PA, with the administration of the Religious Society St. Sophia in the USA and a fraternal meeting with the hierarchs of the Ruthenian Catholic Church.
