The Catechism of the UGCC “Christ is Our Easter” was presented in the Apostolic Exarchate for Ukrainian Catholics of Byzantine Rite in Germany and Scandinavia from October 24 to 27 in Erfurt. Apostolic Exarch Bishop Petro (Kryk) in his speech stressed the importance of the Catechism, which “will be a great help to priests in preaching the Word of God.” According to the bishop, the Catechism will help the faithful of the church understand the UGCC teachings and introduce the teachings to people of other religions and nationalities. The three-day presentation of the Catechism was held under the leadership of one of the authors, Fr. Myron Bendyk, Ph.D., who presented the history and need for writing the Catechism, and introduced all three of its parts. A discussion was held after his presentation. One of the important topics raised was the practical application of the Catechism in the parishes of the UGCC in Germany and Scandinavia and the need for a translation into German. Roman Catholic Bishop of Erfurt Dr. Joachim Wanker also attended the Catechism.
