Ukrainian World Congress shares the deep sorrow of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on the passing into eternity of His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) together with the 20-million strong Ukrainian diaspora shares the deep sorrow of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) and the Ukrainian nation on the passing into eternity of Major Archbishop and former Head of the UGCC, His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar.

Throughout his entire life His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar faithfully served the UGCC and the consolidation in Ukrainian society of the ideals of spirituality, mercy and harmony. Having lived for a long period of time outside Ukraine, His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar knew well and understood the global Ukrainian diaspora and was its wise mentor. The pastoral word of his Beatitude Lubomyr Husar was for Ukrainians worldwide a trustworthy guide, even after his retirement from the leadership of the UGCC, during the EuroMaidan and today’s difficult times for Ukraine.

His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar met on more than one occasion with the UWC leadership, particularly to discuss the most effective ways to support Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, and the importance of raising young Ukrainian generations in the Christian and patriotic spirit.

“The millions-strong Ukrainian diaspora is deeply sorrowed on the passing into eternity of His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar and prays for the repose of his soul,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
