Prior to this appointment, Archbishop Gullickson served as Apostolic Nuncio to many countries of the Caribbean region. Over the period of 19 years of diplomatic relations between the Apostolic See and Ukraine, Archbishop Gullickson has been the fourth Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine.   The new Apostolic Nuncio arrived to Ukraine on 23 September. He will be serving as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Ukraine after presenting “letters of credence” to the President of Ukraine.   During the meeting of the Head of the UGCC with the new Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine, both parties shared their thoughts on the state of interconfessional relations in Ukraine as well as state-church relations. His Beatitude Sviatoslav presented the icon of the Blessed John Paul II to the new Nuncio and invited him to attend the fraternal meeting of Roman-Catholic and Greek-Catholic Bishops of Ukraine which will be held in Lviv-Briukhovychi on 26 October.
