  5. In the Ternopil region, the OCU community kicked out the cleric, who was appointed by the “hierarch”

In the Ternopil region, the OCU community kicked out the cleric, who was appointed by the “hierarch”

In the village of Pochapintsy, Ternopil region, the parishioners of the community of the Holy Myrrh-Bearing Women of the OCU (UAOC) refused to accept as a new rector the clergyman appointed by the head of the Ternopil-Buchatsky diocese, “Archbishop” Tikhon Petranyuk. The video was posted by human rights activist Victoria Kokhanovskaya.

The current rector of the community, “mitred archpriest” Roman Budzinsky, who was “imposed a ban on service” by Petranyuk, challenged this ban with Patriarch Bartholomew. Budzinsky’s community is supportive.

Earlier, the parishioners of the community of the Holy Myrrh-Bearing Women of the OCU (UAOC) in the village of Pochapintsy, Ternopil region, held a meeting at which they decided to turn to the head of the OCU, Epiphanius Dumenko, with a request to accept the community into their direct subordination with the status of “stavropegic”. It was also decided that believers would stop commemorating “Archbishop” Tikhon Petranyuk at the service as the head of the Ternopil-Buchach diocese.
