On the afternoon of Saturday 28th October 2017, over one thousand faithful descended on London to witness an historic occasion – the celebration of an Eastern Rite Liturgy – at Westminster Cathedral, the Mother Church for Catholics in England and Wales.  

His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav, Father and Head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, along with Eastern Catholic Bishops of Europe and members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales celebrated the Pontifical Divine Liturgy in the presence of His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols and the Most Reverend Edward Joseph Adams, Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain. Also in attendance at the Hierarchical service to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Ukrainian Catholic Exarchate/Eparchy were representatives of the Anglican and Orthodox Churches.

During the homily, His Eminence Cardinal Nichols said, “Today, as we Latin rite Catholics witness and take part in liturgies not so often seen in this cathedral, we pray that they can bring us to a deeper understanding of the things of Christ.” He further elaborated on the importance of liturgical catechesis as a tool of evangelisation. The full text of the homily can be accessed online:

      Так откуда, собственно говоря, "родом" этот теперешний МП? А из этих самых "обновленцев"-сергианцев!!! Т. е. в 1943 г. - по приказу тов. Сталина и при участии ведомства тов. Берии

      К сожалению, все правильно написано, не приврал ни слова. Жутчайшее и грубейшее вмешательство государства в церковные дела. Аналог СССР 20х годов 20 века, когда большевики поддерживали и навязывали
