Friday, 27 October 2017, 11:09
His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav paid a courtesy visit to the Archbishop of Westminster, His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols.

During the meeting His Beatitude thanked His Eminence for his support and that of members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales at a time of war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. More than 10,000 have been killed, 2 million have been displaced (1.7 million internally), and the entire population has been impoverished because of the war and Russian sanctions which has resulted in a 60% depreciation of the Ukrainian currency (Hryvnia). In particular, His Beatitude expressed his gratitude for offering his Cathedral for the Pontifical Divine Liturgy taking place on Saturday 28th October 2017 commemorating the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Ukrainian Catholic Exarchate/Eparchy.
