The 5th session of the Patriarchal Council of UGCC on consecrated life will be held from August 31 to September 3, 2011, in Prudentopolis, Brazil, reports the Synod of Bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC). The Secretariat of the council – consisting of representatives from all the continents where the UGCC is active and with the concurrence of the Permanent Synod of Bishops and Patriarch Lubomyr – has already developed the program for the council; and the participants are already sending in reports. According to the Secretary of the 5th session of the Patriarchal Council of the UGCC, Fr. Tarsykii, an organizational committee will be set up in Curitiba to receive the visiting participants and transport them to the session. In Prudentopolis, a committee will be set up to arrange accomodations for the delegates, find a place for the council, and settle other logistical questions. “In the nearest future, other commissions and local groups will be set up to ensure a successful council. The parish priest of the Parish of the Holy Martyr Yosafat, Fr. Yefrem Krefer, is working on this with his parishioners,” said Fr. Tarsykii. On September 4, after the completion of the council, a hierarchical liturgy will be celebrated, after which the bishops of the UGCC in the town of Curitiba will begin the session of the synod. These two important events in the life of the church will be held in Brasil as part of the celebration of the 120th anniversary of Ukrainian immigration to Brasil. The Secretariat of the 5th session of the Patriarchal Council has approached the faithful of the UGCC with a request to say prayers for the successful conduct of the council.   Information Department of the UGCC
