The head of the Collection Department of the Committee to Assist the Development of the Patriarchal Center, Fr.

Small boxes in which all interested persons will be able to make offerings will be delivered to all departments of the chain. They will be placed near the checkouts. They are ceramic, have a round shape, and on them is the image of the cathedral. Quoting His Beatitude Lubomyr, Fr. Vasyl noted: «Mainly the load of financially supporting the construction lies on the shoulders of our faithful; that is, we ourselves will build the cathedral. The first reason for this is that everybody must feel that it is his/her church. And in addition to this we want this cathedral, as well as our whole Church, to remain independent of outside influences. If we took offerings from the state, political parties, and others like that, it would create certain obligations. We want to be free from any obligations.» «We are sincerely thankful to Mr. Bohdan Kozak, general director of Lvivkholod Ltd. (the Rukavychka chain store), for understanding the necessity of financing the construction of the Patriarchal Cathedral and for his significant contribution in this matter pleasing to God.» So said Fr. Vasyl Vil'chyk in conclusion.
