Kostiatyn Panteley, Archmonk Vitaliy Kotyk and Sister Oksana Pelekh, ChNI. “The Feast of 40 Sevastiysky Martyrs which fell on Holy Cross Week, right in the middle of Great Lent, provided the opportunity for spiritual rethinking of life and the deepening of faith by venerating the fourteen  Stations of the Cross  of Christ at Golgotha,” emphasized Heirarch Kostiantyn Panteley. Also noteworthy is the fact, that on March 16th at the invitation of Father Andriy Lemchuka, the group Gloria went to the town of Chortkiv and had the opportunity to visit the Chortkiv Penitentiary.
