On the first anniversary of the departure of His Beatitude Lubomyr into eternity, at the Patriarchal Сuria of the UGCC, His Beatitude Lubomyr Memorial Foundation was created.

This was announced by the Father and Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church His Beatitude Sviatoslav during the Hierarchical Liturgy at the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ on the occasion of the first anniversary of the departure of His Beatitude Lubomyr.

"Today, in all our cathedrals, in all monasteries and parishes in the whole world,  we commemorate the light memory of His Beatitude Lubomyr. We feel that we must together take responsibility for understanding, preserving and spreading his heritage," said the Head of the UGCC.

With this aim, said the Archbishop, at the Patriarchal Curia, we are creating His Beatitude Lubomyr Memorial Foundation. "This Foundation will coordinate all church, public and intellectual initiatives so that we can together comprehend, save and, therefore, extend the priceless treasure of His Beatitude Lubomyr to the whole world," the Head of the UGCC added.

His Beatitude Sviatoslav also noticed that when they began to work on how to do this, they began to understand the greatness and breadth of thought of this great Man, the great Ukrainian, the great Father of our Church. "We see that the greatness and power of Ukraine rest on the shoulders of this giant today," said the Head of the Church.
