At the eucharistic meal were gathered approximately 150 monks and nuns from different orders and communities. After the Divine Liturgy a talk for consecrated persons on the theme “Evangelization in modern culture” was pronounced by bishop-elect Fr. Sviatoslav Shevchuk, rector of the seminary.  "The celebration of the Day of Consecrated Persons, thanks to joint prayer and the sharing of the divine word, enables religious over and over again to immerse themselves in the depth of evangelical grace so that, full of its power, monks and nuns will be able to witness to the divine love in the modern world. Monastics are called to witness this strength of the Gospel, the strength of faith, hope and love, a strength which is so needed by today's world, with its superficial and often artificial values and necessities." So Sister Natalia Mel'nyk, CSHF, Head of the Commission in Matters of Monasticism, said at the end.
