The delegation was led by Svyatoslav Chokalyuk, Ph.D. in theology, associate professor, head of the department of church-historical and practical disciplines of the Kyiv Orthodox Theological Academy.

On the day of the Holy Trinity, Ukrainians took part in the worship at St. John's Church on Phanar, led by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

Upon completion of the Divine service, members of the delegation had talks with the Ecumenical Patriarchate and handed over the petitions of Ukrainian believers. During the conversation, Patriarch Bartholomew expressed his support to the Ukrainian people and conveyed his blessing.

Subsequently, the conversation continued in the patriarchal residence with Archimandrite Joachim (Billis), the chief secretary of the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Fr Joachim has noted that this visit is of high importance for the future of the Church, and especially for Ukraine. He also has noted there is a very fruitful cooperation and interaction on the Ukrainian issue between the Patriarchate and the diplomatic corps of Ukraine in the Turkish Republic, where interpersonal communication plays a crucial role.

    Якщо Церква не буде християнська, а буде українська( чи євроукраїнська, чи масонськоукраїнська), то вона тільки нашкодить.

    В склад делегацїі входили "благочинний Обухівського району УПЦ КП протоієрей Костянтин Мадзяновський, кандидат наук з богослів’я, старший викладач Київської православної богословської академії протоієрей Петро Бойко" - священики КП. Що цікаве, на богослужінні та прийомі у Патріарха вони були не як священики (в підрясниках), а як миряне !!!
