On May 11, Patriarch Svyatoslav of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church visited schoolchildren of Our Ukrainian School in Philadelphia, PA (USA). The Primate had separate meetings with older high school students, with junior students, and with students of middle school age. The First Hierarch encouraged young Ukrainians to keep alive their language and culture, regardless of where they are.

This is reported by the Department of Information of the UGCC.

“The Almighty loves us and wants good for us. Therefore, it is so important that everything that we learn at school, in particular through the study of our own personal roots, was nothing but a way to a personal encounter with our Heavenly Father. As you find Him, you will find everything, and if you do not, you will lose everything you now have. Therefore, I encourage you to dearly love your tradition, culture, language, as well as to discover and love the greatest treasure that our people possess – this is our Christian faith,” the spiritual leader of the Greek Catholics said turning to older students.

The Patriarch of the UGCC stressed that our “standing point” is, first of all, the Lord, for it is always possible to rely on Him, especially in the fleeting modern world.

As RISU has reported, Patriarch Sviatoslav of the UGCC began his official visit to the United States on May 8.

On May 9, at 19.00, the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Philadelphia hosted a presentation of his book Dialogue Heals Wounds.

On May 10, 2019, the Father and the Head of the UGCC, His Beatitude Sviatoslav met with graduates of Our Ukrainian Native School, and also visited the General House of the Basilian Sisters in the USA.

On May 11, at the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Jenkintown, Patriarch Sviatoslav took part in celebrations on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the United States St. Sophia Society.

      "Михаил" ти б хоч в вікіпедію заглянув: • Церква — релігійна громада християн у конкретній місцевості. • Церква — парафія, церковна громада. ЦЕРКВА - ЦЕ Л-Ю-Д-И !!! а як можуть громадяни

      Конституція та державні закони побудовані на Божі справедливості, однак закони пишуть люди, тому держави часто доповнюють або навідь міняють чи уточнюють намір законів. Росія старається використати

      Наївність просто розчулює.

      Я не понимаю два момента. 1) Как можно было выбрать коммуниста председателем этой организации? Кто его выбрал, зачем? 2) При всём при этом не думаю, что он сам решил сесть в кресло главы парламента.

      Церква і держава стоять на одному рівні, коли йдеться про виховання патріотів України і вони допомагають одна одній захищати інтереси України. Недаремно існує гасло: Україна і Бог. Ось два засадничі
