The pilgrimage of workers of the Control and Revision Office of Ternopil’ region to the Maria’s spiritual center of Zarvanytsya lasted for several days. Ninety-five workers and leaders of district administrations, led by Ihor Romankiv, the chief of the regional administration, took part in the pilgrimage. The Divine Liturgy in the Mother of God Cathedral of Zarvanytsya was led by Father Josafat Savran.  “Each of us has a vocation and appointment on the Earth. However clever we are in the execution of our professional obligations, we always need to remember about wisdom from above,” Father Josafat remarked, “because with God we are strong, to Him – truthful source of wisdom – we need to come." After the liturgy pilgrims prayed for the “Cross Road” under the lead of Father Andriy Shalay. Afterwards, they received blessings with the relics of saints and listened to spiritual lessons of the dean of Zarvanytsya Father Volodymyr Toporovs’kyj in the parochial church of Zarvanytsya. Father Volodymyr talked about the dignity of human person as a creation of God.  Ihor Romankiv remarked in gratitude: “It is very positive that our workers arrived with their families. This pilgrimage became a family holiday for us.” In 2009 the Ternopil'-Zboriv Eparchy conducted nine professional pilgrimages to Zarvanytsya, in which over three thousand pilgrims took part. “The conduction of professional pilgrims became a tradition; mainly they are conducted on the eve of a professional holiday. All workers not only from the Ternopil region but also from nearby regions are invited and take part in the pilgrimages,” noted Anna Zvarych, coordinator of the laity apostolate of Ternopil'-Zboriv Eparchy.
