“We have to complete one more significant canonical rite,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav, UGCC Head, in the lower church of the Cathedral of the Transfiguration of Christ after the completion of the funeral services for the deceased Bishop Mykola (Simkaylo).

“We have to complete one more significant canonical rite,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav, UGCC Head, in the lower church of the Cathedral of the Transfiguration of Christ after the completion of the funeral services for the deceased Bishop Mykola (Simkaylo).

The Charter of the UGCC Primate by which Bishop Vasyl (Ivasiuk), Exarch of Odesa-Krym, was named the Administrator of Kolomyia-Chernivtsi Eparchy was publically read.  Then Bishop Vasyl recited the Apostles Creed in the church before UGCC Head and officially took on the new obligations.

“Receive this grieving Eparchy and console it, just as a good father does,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav to the new Administrator of the Eparchy.  UGCC Head turned to the clergy, monks and nuns, the laity, and beseeched them to accept the new bishop and support him in every possible manner.

His Beatitude Sviatoslav reminded all that starting with this evening (May 25, 2013) it is rightful to mention Bishop Vasyl as the Acting Hierarch during services in all the churches of  Kolomyia-Chernivtsi Eparchy.
