On January 29, 2020, the bishops of the Philadelphia Metropolitanate held a regular working meeting to discuss the life of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the United States of America and plan for this year. The meeting was held in Philadelphia.

The participants were: Bishop Borys Gudziak, Archbishop and Metropolitan of Philadelphia, Bishop Pavlo Khomnytsky, Bishop of Stamford, Bishop Venedikt (Aleksiychuk), the Ruling Bishop of the Chicago Eparchy of the UGCC, Bohdan Danylo, Bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Parma, and Andriy Rabiy, Auxiliary Bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia.


A special event at the UGCC will be the Patriarchal Council in Lviv at the end of August this year. In preparation for it, every eparchy of the UGCC in the whole world holds its councils. The theme of the General Patriarchal Council is "Emigration, Settlement, and Global Unity." The US eparchies have also been thinking about immigration, as in recent years the number of newcomers has increased significantly. In this context, it became important to discuss the first stage of a thorough sociological survey and to prepare for its second stage, which will include personal interviews. The purpose of this study is to understand the needs and challenges of the Metropolitan faithful to better serve them.

The bishops therefore set about planning joint events in 2020, specifically the organization of a Metropolitan clergy congress scheduled for October 2020 in Chicago.

The following day, the bishops attended a conference organized by the Philadelphia Archeparchy on "Spiritual and Theological Conclusions About the Crisis of Violence Against Vulnerable People." The speakers at this conference were Fr. Hans Zollner, Jesuit, President of the Center for Child Protection at the Gregorian University in Rome and Deacon Bernie Noyader, Head of the Department of Child and Youth Protection of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of the United States of America.

      Офіс нічого не казав про передачу на 2+2 "Загублений світ", де мова ішла про Ватикан? Виявляється, що усі ті кардинали разом з папами - це бандити, злодії, шулери та убивці. Кар-рочє,

      А зачем обсуждать какую-то там "пцу"? Что это за секта? Мало ли всяких сект на свете, чтобы каждую обсуждать! Начните ещё обсуждать свидетелей Иеговы, баптистов, адвентистов, протестантов и
